Childbirth puts women at risk for pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary or fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. More than 20 percent of women suffer from incontinence or overactive bladder in silence and embarrassment, not knowing where to turn for help.
UT Southwestern Medical Center has one of the largest divisions of urogynecology in the country. We offer our patients a full range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for urinary and pelvic floor conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, voiding dysfunction, constipation, interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infection, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction.
