What is Urogynecology?
Urogynecology is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology focused on pelvic floor disorders. Urogynecologists are specifically trained to treat conditions such as urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (displacement or falling of uterus or vagina walls), difficulty with emptying one's bladder, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, and constipation. Some common risk factors for pelvic floor disorders are vaginal delivery, repetitive straining, heavy lifting, obesity, chronic cough, genetics, and severe constipation.
The two most common conditions are pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence which frequently occur together.
We at Florida Robotic and Minimally Invasive Urogynecology (FRMIU) are dedicated to the special needs of women with pelvic floor disorders. We take the time to conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition and determine a plan of care. Our goal is to provide the highest standard of care in the prevention and treatment of these symptoms in the safest and most effective manner.
