Urogynecology, also known as female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, is a subspecialty in obstetrics and gynecology that focuses on treating women with pelvic floor disorders.
Disorders of the bottom of the pelvis occur when the muscles that support and hold a woman’s pelvic organs become weak, causing problems with the bladder, intestines, or uterus. Although these conditions are common, such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, or pelvic organ prolapse, women are often reluctant to seek help.
Our specialists have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating all types of pelvic floor disorders. We offer treatment options ranging from conservative management to advanced surgical care for complex cases, including reconstructive surgery to restore normal female anatomy and function.

A laparoscope is a thin, lighted telescope. This allows your doctor to see inside your body. Diagnostic laparoscopy can determine if you have conditions such as endometriosis or fibroids. It can also be a form of treatment. With miniaturized instruments, your doctor can perform a variety of surgeries.
