Urogynecology is a medical specialty that treats conditions specific to women including bladder control, bladder frequency and urgency, bladder pain, pelvic prolapse (displacement or "falling" of the pelvic organs) and sexual dysfunction. Urogynecologists specialize in the organs of the pelvis, including the bladder, urethra, vagina, uterus and rectum, as well as correcting problems related to previous pelvic surgeries.
Our specialists are double board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Our team collaborates with other departments, such as urology, gastroenterology, colorectal surgery and physical therapy. A coordinated, interdisciplinary approach allows us to offer you well-rounded, comprehensive care. Our goal is to give you the best treatment possible, allowing you to enjoy your life and live comfortably.
Our team is committed to offering each woman a specific diagnosis and personalized treatment plan. Surgical and nonsurgical treatment options are offered and decisions are made on an individual basis. Those who elect to have surgery will likely be a candidate for a minimally invasive technique that offers long-lasting results with a rapid recovery. Our noninvasive approaches include Botox injections, urethral injections, vaginal surgery and robotic surgery. Vaginal surgery eliminates any incisions from the belly with the entire surgery performed through the vagina. Robot-assisted procedures give our skilled surgeons even more precision, accuracy and flexibility than ever before, while reducing postoperative pain and recovery time. You will be cared for by fellowship-trained urogynecologists who possess a unique blend of gynecologic and urologic surgical training.
Our dedicated team of physicians in the Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Division at Northwell Health are pioneers of care for women with bladder and pelvic abnormalities. Our division is dedicated to improving quality of life for women who suffer from complex disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, bladder infections and sexual problems. Together, we fuse the expertise of several specialties, such as urology and gynecology, in addition to elements of gastroenterology, which allows us to treat even the most complex conditions.
Several Northwell Health locations received the title of a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (COEMIG) by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and the Surgical Review Corporation. Our surgeons constantly look to improve their approaches through minimally invasive procedures in an effort to give you the best treatment possible.
