The Advantages of Expert Care from a Urogynecology Specialist

It can be difficult and at times, embarrassing to address issues such as painful intercourse or urinary incontinence, especially if you have to make repeated visits to different specialists to find the root of your problems. A urogynecologist offers a single place to address all pelvic health needs, from vaginal atrophy for uterine fibroids to pelvic organ prolapse to stress incontinence.

Pelvic organs rely on each other and the same support system to stay healthy and functional. If one piece is out of place, it impacts every organ and its function. A urogynecology specialist looks at the entirety of this complex system and can offer expert care that addresses the whole system rather than treating just specific symptoms.

What is a Urogynecologist?

A urogynecologist is a specialist who focuses on pelvic organ functions and the surrounding tissues and muscles that support these organs, including the vital health of the pelvic floor. While a gynecologist primarily addresses reproductive health, a urogynecologist takes a more holistic look at pelvic health and how issues with reproductive health and urinary and digestive function can be related to each other. A urogynecologist can offer a complete picture of the causes behind pelvic health issues and look at solutions that will strengthen and improve all systems, so they work synergistically together for more effective and longer-lasting pelvic health solutions.

What Conditions can a Urogynecologist Treat?

A board certified urogynecologist can treat a wide range of pelvic health issues and has a full spectrum of tools and techniques available to provide expert care. A urogynecologist treats pelvic disorders like urinary incontinence, uterine fibroids, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain, fecal incontinence, frequent and urgent urination, chronic urinary tract infections, polycystic ovary syndrome, vaginal atrophy and complications related to mesh bladder slings among others.
