Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery
The Vanderbilt Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Team treats female urologic, vaginal, defecatory (bowel-related) and pelvic floor disorders. These conditions cause discomfort, incontinence, constipation and sexual dysfunction that can lead to significant effects on your quality of life. They affect about half of women, and their causes include childbirth, aging, physical strain and previous surgery. Our treatment approaches include nonsurgical options, and, when needed, advanced minimally-invasive surgery.
