You are not alone! We are here to help.

At USF Health, we want to make it easy for our patients to get the care they need.

Urinary incontinence and female pelvic floor disorders are more common than you might think. More than 20 million American women experience urinary incontinence. Pelvic floor conditions are more common than hypertension, depression, or diabetes. Embarrassment and misinformation keep many women from seeking help. If you have any concerns, the health care team at USF Health can provide information on how to improve, treat and even cure your discomfort.

There is no need to suffer with loss of bladder control, bowel control, or pelvic discomfort. Most cases can be corrected with minimally invasive surgery and some conditions do not require surgery at all.

USF Health’s Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (aka Urogynecology) team are highly trained, board-certified specialists in female pelvic floor care. Our urogynecologists, imaging experts, and nurses are experienced in diagnosing and managing complex pelvic floor disorders in women of all ages. 

Our strong relationship with other specialists at USF Health in urology, colorectal surgery, physical therapy, and gastroenterology means your care is coordinated and seamless. 

Our patients have access to a full range of successful surgical and nonsurgical therapies. Your treatment plan will be personally designed to suit your needs, symptoms, and medical condition. Some of these conditions include:

  • Pelvic organ prolapse (Cystocele, rectocele, enterocele)
  • Overactive bladder symptoms (urinary urgency, frequency, and urgency incontinence)
  • Urinary incontinence associated with coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercise (“stress type”)
  • Vesicovaginal fistulas (abnormal communication between bladder and vagina)
  • Rectovaginal fistulas (abnormal communication between rectum and vagina). 
  • Fecal Incontinence or accidental bowel leakage
  • Complications related to vaginal mesh
  • Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections
  • Urethral Diverticulum
  • Interstitial Cystitis
