Urogynecology Q & A

What is urogynecology?

Urogynecology is a subspecialty of gynecology that involves a range of services aiming to diagnose and treat pelvic floor disorders. Dr. Mayo uses his expertise in this field to manage problems associated with the female pelvic organs, and the muscles and tissues that support the organs. Common clinical problems include:

  • Urinary incontinence, or leakage
  • Pelvic organ prolapse, or dropping of the vagina, uterus, cystocele, or rectocele
  • Fecal incontinence

What kinds of services are offered under urogynecology?

Dr. Mayo offers a variety of urogynecological services that aim to improve your quality of life. These procedures treat a variety of clinical conditions, including:

Incontinence

A weakened pelvic floor can cause leaking or loss of bladder or bowel control. It can become incredibly disruptive to daily living, to the point where your bladder may take over your life. Dr. Mayo can provide a comprehensive treatment plan to reverse this problem.

Prolapse

Vaginal or uterine prolapse also derives from the weakening of the pelvic muscles, but involves the dropping or descending of pelvic organs. If muscle training proves to be ineffective, surgical measures can be taken to treat and correct prolapse.

Emptying disorders

Many women may experience difficulty urinating or moving bowels as a result of a dysfunctional pelvic floor or bladder. Treatment efforts can range from behavior and dietary modifications to minimally invasive surgery.

You can consult with Dr. Mayo about other pelvic floor disorders including:

  • Pelvic discomfort
  • Overactive bladder
  • Urinary tract infection

Upon your consultation, you can discuss your specific needs and treatment plan to resume your daily activities in stress-free.

What does a urogynecological assessment look like?

Dr. Mayo may first assess and diagnose your condition through a combination of methods. These include:

  • Noting your medical and health history
  • Conducting examinations
  • Assessing your sexual functioning
  • Recommending a bladder diary

He may then start treatment using more conservative measures, such as exercises that train the pelvic floor and bladder muscles, or fluid and food modification. If these measures aren’t effective in correcting your symptoms, Dr. Mayo can offer surgical treatment that is minimally invasive.
