Comprehensive services

Because the pelvis is a meeting ground for many organs and system functions, patients often come to us thinking they have a certain condition, but they’ve been reluctant to get the needed care. Let’s face it, some pelvic conditions can be difficult or even embarrassing to discuss. You don’t have to worry about that here.

Our Pelvic Health providers have the proven knowledge and experience to ask the right questions and conduct the right diagnostic exams and tests to decipher your symptoms, no matter how complex. Once they understand your case and have an informed diagnosis, our medical team develops a holistic treatment plan. Treatment plans include surgery, physical therapy, medicine, or a combination of tools, featuring a minimally invasive approach. 

Most common conditions

  • Incontinence: The official medical term for when you unexpectedly leak a little from your bladder or bowels, such as when you laugh or sneeze.
  • Emptying disorders: Includes trouble emptying your bladder all the way or difficulty with bowel movements, such as constipation and diarrhea.
