Female Pelvic Medicine

Expert Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

At University Hospitals, specialists from a variety of fields, including urology, urogynecology, gynecology and colorectal surgery, collaborate to provide women with the latest treatment options for a wide range of pelvic floor disorders.

Patients are cared for in a comfortable, relaxed environment by experts who are highly qualified to guide them through an accurate medical diagnosis of their condition. Once their condition has been thoroughly assessed, the team works to develop and deliver a personalized treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome. Treatment options may range from lifestyle changes and physical therapy to minimally invasive or complex surgical procedures.

Conditions we treat include:

Robotic Surgery for Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Other Conditions

UH female pelvic medicine surgeons offer da Vinci robotic surgery as a treatment option for conditions requiring complex pelvic surgery. UH surgeons perform a variety of robotic urologic and gynecologic procedures to treat conditions such as uterovaginal pelvic organ prolapse. Robotic pelvic organ prolapse surgery, or sacrocolpopexy, is safe and effective at managing this condition and can greatly improve a woman’s quality of life and sense of well-being. The da Vinci robotic surgery system uses state-of-the-art surgical tools and 3-D visualization to help surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery with greater precision and accuracy. Minimally invasive robotic surgery and pelvic floor procedures aim at restoring anatomy to restore proper function, and have a number of advantages over open surgery. Smaller incisions means less blood loss, lower risk of complications and less pain. Patients who undergo robotic surgery also may enjoy shorter hospitals stays, faster recovery and better outcomes.

Other pelvic conditions that can be treated using robotic surgery include post-hysterectomy pelvic organ prolapsevesicovaginal and ureterovaginal fistulas, which can cause urinary incontinence in women.
