Urogynecology

Master
Content

Urogynecology, also known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, is a subspecialty in the field of obstetrics and gynecology that focuses on the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders.

Pelvic floor disorders occur when the muscles that support and hold a woman’s pelvic organs in place become weakened, causing issues with the bladder, bowels or uterus. While these conditions are common, such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder or pelvic organ prolapse, women are often hesitant to seek help. 

At Baylor Medicine, our urogynecologists are improving the lives of women suffering from these disorders through expert care and a wide range of effective treatment options. We are dedicated to increasing awareness of these conditions and the treatments available to enhance the quality of life for more women.

What is a urogynecologist?

Content

Urogynecologists are specialists trained in both gynecology and urology, combining expertise in the treatment of women’s reproductive systems with expertise in the treatment of urinary tract disorders. They are uniquely positioned to care for women with pelvic floor disorders.

If surgery is required, board certified physicians in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery often have superior training in minimally invasive techniques, resulting in less pain, less bleeding, less risk of infection, less scarring, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery compared to open abdominal surgery.
