About Urogynecology

What is urogynecology?

Urogynecology is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology. Our team of specially trained urogynecologists has completed four years of residency training in obstetrics and gynecology, followed by a fellowship in urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery.

Is incontinence a normal part of aging?

While urinary or fecal incontinence becomes more common with advanced age, it is never a normal part of aging. If incontinence is negatively affecting your quality of life, you should consider speaking with one of our urogynecologists.

Am I too old for surgery?

The short answer is no. We will evaluate your overall health and the degree of your urogynecologic problem, and then help you decide if a non-surgical or surgical option is right for you. Because we specialize in urogynecology, we have options that other practitioners may not have available.

What if I choose not to have treatment for my incontinence or for my prolapse?

You can always choose to live with your condition. In most cases, the incontinence or prolapse will worsen with time if left untreated. In rare cases, when the bladder has prolapsed past the vaginal opening and bladder emptying is compromised, the kidneys may be affected and forgoing treatment would be dangerous.
