Helping Pelvic Floor Disorders and Women with GI Issues

Pelvic floor disorders affect many people and can cause a number of uncomfortable or socially embarrassing symptoms.

Our goal is to provide reassuring, community-based care to help you maintain your pelvic health. Our team will evaluate and diagnose your symptoms and come up with a treatment plan tailored to your exact needs.

While pelvic floor disorders impact both sexes, they are generally more prevalent for women. One in three American women will experience mild to severe symptoms at some point in her life, and nearly half of women age 55 or older receive treatment for a pelvic floor, bladder or bowel condition.

Regain Confidence & Control

Our team approach combines gastroenterologists, gynecologists, and physical and behavioral therapists to provide specialized diagnosis and treatment for pelvic floor dysfunctions, including:

  • urinary incontinence
  • neuro-urologic disorders
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • fecal incontinence
  • structural abnormalities of the pelvic floor — rectocele, cystocele, enterocele and sigmoidocele
  • pelvic pain

Our individualized treatment plans make use of the latest non-invasive and surgical therapies and the most effective technologies.

Treating Pelvic Dysfunction

Many pelvic floor disorders can be managed with noninvasive treatments and therapies. Our specialists work with your care team to structure an appropriate treatment plan to relieve your symptoms. You’ll receive access to the most up-to-date treatments, including:

  • biofeedback
  • electrical stimulation
  • manual therapy
  • physical therapy
  • surgery
  • vaginal dilators
  • visceral mobilization techniques
