Advanced Treatment Options
For patients whose symptoms fail to improve with nonsurgical treatment, our experienced physicians can often improve symptoms with surgery. The Pelvic Floor Program includes Fellowship- trained, Board-Certified physicians who specialize in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). Some of these procedures can be performed using the latest minimally invasive robotic surgery techniques, which minimize patients discomfort, scarring, blood loss and downtime.
