of Pelvic Floor Disorders

Urogynecology Specialist

Expert Care in Female Pelvic Medicine

At CLS Health, we understand that every woman’s body is unique. That’s why we offer specialized care for pelvic floor disorders through our Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery (URPS) clinic. Our urogynecologist and team is dedicated to providing each patient with individualized treatment based on her specific needs. Urogynecologists are OB-GYNs who have received additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders. Urogynecology is the study of these disorders, which can include conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence.

If you’re suffering from pelvic floor disorders (PFDs), you may need to see a urogynecologist for treatment. Disorders of the pelvic floor involve the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that support the pelvic organs. PFDs may require vaginal surgery. You may need to see a urogynecologist if you have problems with prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence, emptying the bladder or rectum, pelvic pain, or bladder pain. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, talk to your doctor about a referral to a urogynecologist.

Conditions and Treatments

According to the American Urogynecologic Society, one-in-three women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in her life. Nearly all pelvic floor problems can be corrected through behavioral physical therapy, surgery, or medication.

Many patients benefit from minimally invasive surgical procedures performed by a bladder specialist. Minimally invasive surgery means less blood loss, faster recovery time, less pain medication, and less scarring. Some procedures can even be done on an outpatient basis.

We strive to treat pelvic floor conditions with compassionate and individualized care. Our Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery (URPS) Clinic at CLS Health offers the latest minimally invasive surgical and non-surgical treatments for women.

Urogynecology FAQ

What is pelvic organ prolapse, or POP?

Pelvic organ prolapse is the dropping of the pelvic organs caused by the loss of support of the vagina. POP occurs when there is weakness or damage to the normal support of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor holds up the pelvic organs, including the vagina, cervix, uterus, bladder, urethra, intestines, and rectum. If the muscles of the pelvic floor and layers of connective tissue (called fascia) become weakened, stretched, or torn, the pelvic organs may fall downward. The organs drop down from where they should be and can cause issues. In severe cases of prolapse, women may feel or see tissue coming out of the opening of their vagina. Typically, the tissue coming out is from a prolapsing cervix and uterus, or the walls of the vagina.

Am I at Risk?

Pelvic organ prolapse is common in women. The incidence increases after childbearing and as women increase in age.

Childbirth can cause injury to the muscles or fascia of the pelvic floor. The pressure of childbirth on the abdominal internal organs can lead to POP. Operative vaginal deliveries (use of forceps or vacuum) can also increase the risk of pelvic floor injury and risk of women developing prolapse. Route of delivery is a very important and complicated topic—discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.

Though pregnancy and vaginal birth do contribute to the development of pelvic floor disorders, there are women who have delivered many times but never developed prolapse. And, others who have never been pregnant who leak urine and stool. Risk factors, which predispose, cause, promote, or worsen pelvic organ prolapse, include:

Genetics

POP is a hereditary disorder, meaning that it can be genetic. The strength of our bones, muscles and connective tissue is determined by our genetics. As a result, there are some women born with weaker tissues who are at a higher risk for prolapse.

Caucasian women are shown to be more likely to develop pelvic organ prolapse than African American women.

Lifestyle

Smoking can increase the risk of developing POP.

Pelvic Floor Injury

Pelvic floor injury can occur during vaginal delivery, surgery, pelvic radiation, or fractures to the back and pelvis caused by falls or motor vehicle accidents.

Procedures done to treat pelvic organ prolapse like Hysterectomies are also associated with the future development of prolapse.

Other Health Conditions:

  • Consistent Constipation and Straining
  • Chronic Coughing
  • Obesity
  • Menopause
  • Nerve and Muscle Diseases that Contribute to the Deterioration of Strength in the Pelvic Floor
  • Heavy Lifting and Intense Repetitive Activity, Such as CrossFit
