Pelvic floor disorders are not just for older women. In fact, you may be surprised to hear that many pelvic health issues also apply to men. People of all ages and backgrounds now have the resources available to them at Florida Hospital Tampa to control and improve their pelvic health.
With the addition of video urodynamics at Florida Hospital Tampa, our specialists now have access to state-of-the-art equipment that provides improved diagnostic accuracy using real-time imagery. This test is performed by a board-certified urologist who reviews the results and determines the most effective treatment plan. This advanced technology allows our specialists to diagnose and treat urinary tract disorders that basic urodynamic testing would not be able to detect.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Pelvic floor disorders are often a result of weakening or misuse of the muscles that control our pelvic organs. The good news is that pelvic floor therapy can retrain these muscles and help restore normal function without surgery or other invasive treatments. Our Pelvic Floor Specialist is specially trained to treat urinary, bowel, and sexual dysfunctions, and use exercises to help alleviate pelvic pain and surgical scar tissue in the pelvic region.
Minimally Invasive Surgical Options
We want what is best for our patients. Our physicians are experts in their specialty and use minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques to restore your pelvic health. These advanced techniques allow for greater precision to the surgeon, and for you, this means smaller incisions, less pain, minimal scarring, and a faster recovery.
