Center for Chronic Pelvic Pain
Pelvic floor dysfunction is a term applied to a broad collection of conditions affecting the pelvic organs. These include:
- Urinary incontinence
- Neuro-urologic disorders
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Fecal incontinence
- Defecatory dysfunction
- Inflammatory bowel disorders
While they affect both men and women, they are generally more prevalent in women. These are common problems with a significant burden for those who suffer from them.
The Women's Center for Pelvic Health provides multidisciplinary care insuring that patients receive individualized therapy of the highest quality. In an effort to ease the patient's burden of pursuing integrated care for pelvic floor disorders, specialists from the different disciplines collaborate very closely to ensure a seamless care process for patients. The Center treats all aspects of pelvic floor dysfunction.
