The physicians at the UNC Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery are experts in the treatment of a variety of pelvic floor disorders.
Pelvic floor disorders are caused by weakened pelvic muscles or tears in the connective tissue. As the pelvic floor weakens, it cannot continue to provide the support that your organs need to work effectively. This can cause problems with the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina, or rectum.
Conditions We Treat
Complications from pelvic floor disorders can be embarrassing, but you’re not alone. Approximately one in four women (or 25 percent) will experience a pelvic floor disorder (pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence or fecal incontinence) in their lifetime.
We offer a complete range of treatment for the following:
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Urinary incontinence
- Voiding dysfunction
- Accidental bowel leakage
- Obstructed defecation
- Vaginal mesh complications
- Poor healing post-delivery
- Rectovaginal and vesicovaginal fistulae
- Interstitial cystitis
UNC Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery utilizes the expertise of UNC physicians, in collaboration with the REX Women's Center physicians, to offer specialized, compassionate care for women with pelvic floor dysfunction. Our urogynecologists are OB-GYN board certified with an additional subspecialty certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
