Specialties, Services & Treatments
Pelvic health disorders are common. Nearly 1 in 3 women experience some form of symptoms, including incontinence, frequency and urgency of urination, pelvic pressure or heaviness, pelvic pain and sexual problems.
These conditions may cause women to feel socially isolated, experience sexual inhibition, or fear making social or travel plans. Careers and personal relationships often are affected.
Many women don't seek care because they don't know that treatment is available, or think the condition is too minor or embarrassing to pursue. Many feel they have to "live with it," buying pads or relying on medications that may have side effects.
We bring together professionals from a variety of specialties to work with you to evaluate your problem and design a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms.

Although many women experience pelvic floor conditions, it still may be uncomfortable to talk to your health care provider about your symptoms.
