Urogynecology & Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery

Pelvic floor disorders are a complex combination of medical problems that threaten the quality of life for people of all ages. These conditions include urinary and fecal incontinence, rectal and vaginal prolapse and complex combinations of these disorders, as well as interstitial cystitis, and other pelvic pain syndromes.

Although both men and women are affected, according to the Department of U.S. Health & Human Services, millions of women are affected by some level of bladder leakage. Since many of these disorders co-exist, comprehensive evaluation and therapy is essential. Fortunately, over the past few years, more accurate diagnosis has led to improvement in non-surgical and surgical outcomes, and better patient satisfaction.

The skilled surgeons at Florida Hospital Carrollwood perform many types of procedures to treat both common and rare urogynecological conditions. Our urogynecologists perform minimally-invasive treatment to reduce patient discomfort and promote more rapid healing. They have extensive experience in robotic, vaginal and laparoscopic approaches, as well as reconstructive surgery, and the restoration of normal anatomy and function.
