Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Disorders

Improving Women's Quality of Life with Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery

Fit older woman on urogynecology pageAs many as one in three women are affected by gynecologic and bladder conditions that impair their comfort and quality of life.

At Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, we treat a broad range of conditions, including urinary or fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Prolapse occurs when the uterus, bladder, rectum or bowels drop down and create a bulge into the vaginal opening. These problems are often age-related, and can be treated successfully.

Our expert physicians are dedicated to these important healthcare problems. We specialize in the care of women with pelvic floor and benign gynecologic disorders.

Comprehensive Program

Our fellowship-trained urogynecologists are female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgeons (FPMRS). They treat urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse using robotic and vaginal surgery, in addition to nonsurgical treatment. We provide a thorough evaluation, including state-of-the-art onsite testing and minimally invasive treatment options to improve quality of life and get women back to normal daily activities.

Pelvic Floor Conditions Treated

We specialize in the treatment of the following conditions:

Convenient Diagnosis and Treatment for Complex Cases

As a large number of women are affected by more than one pelvic floor disorder (rectal prolapse and complex recto-vaginal fistulas), our team of physicians also works jointly with colorectal and urological surgeons to perform thorough evaluations and design a treatment plan.

Diagnostic Urogynecologic Services

Urodynamic Testing

Urodynamic testing evaluates the function of the bladder during filling and emptying. This outpatient test is used for women with urinary symptoms and pelvic organ prolapse. Testing is done in a private, comfortable setting and is invaluable in diagnosing complex incontinence problems.

Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy is performed to inspect the bladder, urethra and uteral function. It is performed under local anesthesia in the office setting for conditions including blood in the urine, refractory incontinence and chronic urinary tract infections.

Endoanal Ultrasound and Anorectal Manometry

For women with bowel complaints, including fecal incontinence, we provide these diagnostic tests and comprehensive assessments so we can recommend the best treatment.

Treatment Options

We offer nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse including minimally invasive techniques such as robotic surgery. In addition, we offer a comprehensive line of treatment for urinary incontinence, which includes urethral bulking, midurethral slings and botox injections.
