Pelvic Reconstruction: Building Back Health
As a type of procedure addressed by female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, pelvic reconstruction is one of our main areas of focus at Coyle Institute. Under the direction of renowned urogynecologist, Dr. Michael Coyle, our team of experts offer the women in our care the very best treatments available, and we make it a top priority to provide the most effective, most medically advanced solutions and methods of pelvic reconstruction.
Pelvic Reconstruction Innovation
We know that the circumstances surrounding the need for this particular type of surgery are both complex and extremely distressing, and our greatest hope is to offer our patients the calming, sympathetic care that will reassure them during this time. We’re a team known for our innovative use of laparoscopic surgery and other minimally-invasive treatment options, including daVinci® surgery, as well as more traditional types of surgery; and we want every woman who comes to us to feel secure in the knowledge that we will explore every solution and offer them guidance in finding their best way back to a happy, healthy life.
Due to the sensitive nature of the subject, female surgery of any kind is often a topic that is only minimally addressed in the public realm, which often means that many women are left unaware that the complex conditions they are facing may actually be alleviated by surgical intervention.
There are, in fact, a number of urogynecological conditions that can be solved through pelvic reconstruction, including:
- Overactive bladder
- Bladder prolapse
- Vaginal prolapse
- Fistulas—or holes—in the rectum, vagina, bladder, or uterus
Pelvic Reconstruction: Determining a Direction
Depending on the severity of the condition, different pelvic reconstruction options will be carefully evaluated before any action is taken. While some cases may require open surgery, many patients may be relieved to know that minimally-invasive methods will be extremely effective, such as laparoscopic hysterectomy. At Coyle Institute, we often employ the use of robotics such as the highly-progressive da Vinci procedure as an option in pelvic organ prolapse treatment, firmly believing that pelvic reconstruction is an area of women’s treatment that can greatly benefit from such technologically advanced solutions.
Many women come to Coyle Institute in search of options for conditions such as a prolapsed bladder or at a time in their lives that the removal of their uterus has become a medical necessity. We explore every possible avenue of treatment that we feel would best benefit their specific biological needs, and we offer them our best advice and guidance based on our findings. We want to ease them through this period in their lives, from the first consultations and examinations, and we want to offer our patients the reassurance of our expertise as well as our genuine desire to build a lasting relationship with them. As a medical practice, we realize the importance of professional knowledge, but we also deeply appreciate that creating a dynamic of trust between patient and physician is crucial to achieving results.
Pelvic Reconstruction: Systems and Symptoms
At Coyle Institute, we begin with diagnostic testing to assess the severity and complexity of the problem and run a full medical history so that we are fully equipped with a clear picture of any pre-existing conditions or disorders that may need to be taken into consideration before any treatment plan is executed. In order for the body to perform at its highest level, it needs to be considered not only within specific systems, but also in how all of those systems relate to one another. While we may not operate on the more general level, by specializing in urogynecology, we focus both on urology and gynecology and how the two coexist and so greatly affect the rest of the body.
So much of a woman’s overall health and ability to function is addressed within the field of urogynecology, and by offering pelvic reconstruction, Coyle Institute offers patients throughout the Gulf Coast solutions to the very real pain they face in their everyday lives.
