The Division of Uro-Gynecology and Pelvic Floor Reconstructive Surgery addresses the problems associated with pelvic floor dysfunction, including urinary and fecal incontinence and sexual dysfunction. As women continue to live longer and maintain active lifestyles, the need to address the problems that develop because of pelvic floor dysfunction has intensified. A full array of treatments is available, including physical therapy, biofeedback, and surgical procedures that correct these defects. These procedures include:
• Transvaginal “bulking up” procedure to treat urinary incontinence
• Transvaginal "sling" procedure to treat urinary incontinence
• Minimal invasive surgery to treat prolapses of the bladder, rectum, uterus, and vagina
