Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery

  • Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery

    HealthTexas’ urogynecologists offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor disorders, including those of the bladder, rectum, and vagina.  These experienced physicians all have three years of fellowship training in urogynecology, complex benign gynecologic surgery, and pelvic reconstructive surgery. Their focus is improving these conditions to enhance their patient’s quality of life.

    Conditions treated include problems related to pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, rectocele, enterocele, uterine prolapse), fecal incontinence, constipation, urinary incontinence, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, prevention and management of recurrent UTIs, rectovaginal and vesicovaginal fistulas, complication from vaginal mesh, and benign vulvar disease.

    The urogynecologists also treat female sexual dysfunction, such as diminished arousal, diminished sexual desire, orgasmic dysfunction and painful intercourse. Given the breadth of training and experience, they are able to offer comprehensive care using diverse treatment options, including in-house pelvic floor therapy, behavioral therapies, and education, oral medications, neuromodulation techniques, such as Interstim and tibial nerve stimulation (both alter never function to the bladder). One of the newer treatments approved by the FDA for urinary urge incontinence is Botox®. Injecting Botox directly into the bladder muscle can be an effective and safe way to treat the condition for patients who do not respond to behavioral therapy or medication.
