What Is Urogynecology?
A urogynecologist cares for women with pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) with a combination of gynecology and reconstructive surgery; or medical treatment.
The most common pelvic floor disorders are:
- Pelvic organ prolapse (weakening of the muscles and tissues supporting the organs in the pelvis)
- Urinary incontinence (leaking of urine)
- Fecal incontinence (leaking of stool)
