Urogynecology

Urogynecology

Urogynecology, a subspecialty within obstetrics and gynecology, is dedicated to treating women with pelvic floor disorders. At Temple Health Elkins Park, we specialize in the treatment of a wide range of urogynecologic conditions, including:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Overactive bladder
  • Pelvic prolapse — a condition that occurs when a pelvic organ, such as the uterus, drops (prolapses) from its normal spot in the lower belly and pushes against the walls of the vagina.
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction — a condition that occurs when one is unable to control the muscles in the pelvic floor to urinate or have a bowel movement.
  • Fecal incontinence — involuntary loss of gas or stool.
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Interstitial cystitis and bladder pain syndromes — chronic conditions characterized by a combination of uncomfortable bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pain in the pelvis.
  • Vulvar disorders or pain
  • Post-surgical complications
  • Vesicovaginal fistula — an abnormal connection between the bladder and vagina, resulting in leaking of urine through the vagina.
  • Rectovaginal fistula — an abnormal connection between the rectum and vagina and can result in the leaking of gas or stool through the vagina.
