Living with incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and disruptive to daily living. But it doesn't have to be.
Urogynecologists are gynecologists who specialize in caring for women with urinary and pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence, pelvic pain and pelvic organ prolapse—common conditions that can often be treated effectively. These physicians undergo specialized training in obstetrics and gynecology and many have a formal fellowship focused on surgical and nonsurgical treatment of pelvic floor disorders.
