Genital and pelvic reconstruction aims to restore normal anatomy and function of the genitourinary tract. The function or appearance of these areas can sometimes be affected by certain treatments or diseases, like cancer.
We recognize that restoring normal bodily function is just as important as curing the disease itself. Our surgeons have made significant advances over the past 20 years with better understanding of injury, reconstruction and the advancement of surgical techniques.
Surgical reconstruction is offered for a variety of conditions and can be categorized according to body part:
- Surgical reconstruction of the penis and scrotum is often necessary to manage genital trauma, genital cancers, congenital deformities and Peyronie’s disease.
- Male urethral reconstruction is generally offered for conditions such as urethral stricture disease, urethral injuries/trauma, urinary incontinence and rectourethral fistulas associated with trauma, surgery or radiation.
- Bladder reconstruction is required for management of injuries or malignancies of the pelvic region, and it is often combined with major cancer operations of the pelvis.
- Urogynecologic reconstruction is offered to manage pelvic floor relaxation, urethral diverticula, urethral injuries in the female, urinary incontinence and vesicovaginal fistulas caused by prior trauma, surgery or radiation.
