Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology)
The Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, also known as Urogynecology, provides expert care for a wide variety of female pelvic diseases. We diagnose and offer non-surgical and surgical treatments for conditions related to pelvic organ prolapse, bladder/bowel control, pelvic pain, sexual disorders, childbirth injuries and post-cancer survivorship. In the clinic and operating room, we offer a full range of evidence-based surgical therapies.
One out of every three women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in her lifetime. Too often, women think that they simply have to live with the pain, embarrassment, and discomfort caused by these conditions. Our medical teams know this is not the case; many of these conditions are in fact treatable. Scripps Clinic Medical Group’s Urogynecology providers are highly skilled medical practitioners and surgeons who have undergone years of fellowship training and hold board certifications that enable us to provide expert consultation and individually tailored care plans. We pride ourselves in offering holistic therapies, be it lifestyle changes, complementary treatments, pelvic muscle rehabilitation, nutritional counseling or assistance from mental health experts. We work closely with colleagues in gastroenterology, colorectal surgery, urology, obstetrics, oncology and more to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to our patients’ care.
Our physicians are meticulous surgeons with additional training in a wide variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures, from vaginal procedures to robot-assisted laparoscopic surgeries (belly-button surgery through small incisions). Additionally, our teams practice modern Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) techniques to ensure patient recovery is quick, with minimal use of opioids. Our singular focus is on providing patients with world class care during and after surgery.
