Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery & Urogynecology
Learning that surgery may be needed can often times fill a patient with anxiety and worry. With the amount of old wives’ tales and far-fetched rumors that cycle around, it is no wonder that individuals find themselves being eaten away by unwarranted apprehension. At Pavilion for Women’s Health and Wellness, we want our patients to know that they are in the best care with our experienced and well-trained doctors. We will inform you of the steps that will be taken before, during, and after the procedure to provide you with the comfort of knowing what to expect.
Pelvic Floor Disorders
Urogynecology and Pelvic reconstructive surgery are needed when women begin to have problems with their pelvic floor. Reconstruction is performed by a urogynecologist. Pelvic floor disorders can include damage to your bladder, bowel function, and vagina caused by childbirth, continuous heavy lifting, chronic disease or surgery causing you to need reconstructive surgery.
If you are wondering whether you may be suffering from a pelvic floor disorder, there are a few common symptoms you can look out for. Some of these symptoms may include:
- Abnormally frequent urges of urination
- Being woken several times a night with the need to urinate
- Leakage of urine, especially while completing activities that apply stress to the bladder
- Uncontrolled loss of stool or gas
In addition to surgical options, there are many treatment routes patients may decide to take. However, no two patients are the same. A treatment option that is effective for one person may not have as positive of an impact on another. That is why it is imperative that you meet with a knowledgeable healthcare professional in order to find out the options available to you and which ones may be the most effective in relation to your current state of health and medical history.
Below, we have listed a few treatment options available to patients who are greatly affected by the symptoms tied with incontinence.
Treatments for Pelvic Floor Disorders may Include:
- Kegel (pelvic muscle exercises)
- Changing your Diet
- Bladder Training
