Complex women’s health issues can not only cause uneasiness and discomfort, but they can also be uncomfortable to talk about. At UAMS’ Urogynecology Clinic, we understand that these are sensitive issues you may be facing, and we do our best to not only make you feel comfortable about your condition but also your treatment.
Urogynecology involves the diagnosis and treatment of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and female pelvic floor disorders. Incontinence and pelvic floor problems are remarkably common; in fact, pelvic floor conditions are as common as hypertension, depression or diabetes. Despite the prevalance of these conditions, many women are reluctant to receive help because of the stigma associated with them.
Some conditions treated in our urogynecology practice include:
Our team has advanced training in urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery. We are experienced in vaginal, abdominal and laparoscopic surgery for pelvic organ prolapse as well as vaginal surgery for stress incontinence.
UAMS also offers pelvic floor rehabilitation through our physical therapy program.
