What is Urogynecology?

Urogynecology, also known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), is a specialized branch of gynecology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the female pelvic organs and pelvic floor muscles. These conditions primarily affect the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum.

Conditions We Treat

At Norton Community Medical Associates, our experienced urogynecologists provide expert care for a wide range of urogynecological conditions. Some of the conditions we treat include but are not limited to:

  • Urinary Incontinence: This is the involuntary leakage of urine, which can significantly impact a woman's daily life.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse: This occurs when the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, shift from their normal positions and descend into the vagina.
  • Interstitial Cystitis: This chronic condition is characterized by a combination of bladder pain, urinary urgency, and frequency, affecting a woman's quality of life.
  • Overactive Bladder: It is a condition characterized by frequent and urgent urination, often accompanied by urge incontinence.
  • Voiding Dysfunction: This refers to difficulties with urination, including incomplete emptying of the bladder or weak urine flow.
  • Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): Some women experience frequent UTIs that require specialized care.
  • Fistulas: A fistula is an abnormal connection between two organs. Urogynecology addresses urogynecological fistulas involving the urinary or gastrointestinal systems.

Treatment Options

Our dedicated urogynecology team at Norton Community Medical Associates is well-versed in providing a range of treatment options tailored to address each patient's unique needs. Treatment approaches may include:

  • Behavioral Therapies: These strategies aim to improve bladder and pelvic muscle function through exercises and lifestyle modifications.
  • Medications: Depending on the condition, certain medications may be prescribed to manage symptoms or control the underlying cause.
  • Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation: This includes physical therapy techniques that strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can be effective in managing various urogynecological conditions.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: When necessary, our expert urogynecologists perform minimally invasive surgical techniques to correct specific urogynecological issues.
  • Robotic Surgery: In complex cases, robotic-assisted surgery may be utilized to enhance precision and promote quicker recovery times.
