What Is a Urogynecologist?
Urology of Indiana houses Central Indiana’s Premier Bladder and Pelvic Health Center. Our Fellowship-trained Urogynecology specialists offer a full range of diagnostic and treatment options for women suffering from pelvic floor disorders.
A Urogynecologist is a physician who has undergone advanced, specialized training in the evaluation and treatment of conditions that affect the female pelvic organs. The American Board of Medical Specialties approved Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, also known as Urogynecology, as a certified subspecialty in 2011. Board certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery means that the physician has passed an exam from the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG) and American Board of Urology (ABU) demonstrating exceptional expertise in this specialty.
Some of the conditions our Urogynecologists treat include (but are not limited to):
- Fallen (prolapsed) pelvic organs
- Bladder control problems
- Bowel incontinence
If you experience pelvic floor disorders, you are not alone. We can help! More than 40% of women suffer from urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders. These problems can seriously affect quality of life and prevent you from enjoying normal daily activities. Many women do not seek help for pelvic floor disorders because they are unaware that safe and effective treatments exist.
