Urogynecology & Pelvic Medicine

Autumn Edenfield

Pelvic floor disorders are incredibly common among women and include a complex combination of medical problems that can affect the quality of life for patients of all ages. These conditions include urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, overactive bladder, recurrent urinary tract infections and interstitial cystitis, a pelvic pain /bladder pain syndrome.

Our urogynecologists offer a full range of diagnostic and treatment options to meet your bladder and pelvic floor needs. Urogynecologists specialize in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery and include surgeons able to perform minimally invasive including vaginal and robotic surgery for the complex repairs of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, as well as a myriad of non-surgical options and in-office procedures.

Among the pelvic floor issues treated are:

  • Urinary Incontinence (the inability to hold it until you can reach a restroom; can happen after childbirth or due to age).
    • Urinary incontinence is common following childbirth and as we advance in age. But it does not need to be a permanent health problem.
  • Overactive bladder (causes the bladder muscle to squeeze involuntarily, resulting in the urge to urinate).
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections / UTIs (a bacterial infection in the urinary tract, urethra, bladder, or kidneys).
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (when one or more organs slip from their normal positions).
  • Interstitial cystitis / bladder pain syndrome (a chronic pain syndrome affecting the bladder and urethra)
