The Vanderbilt Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Program treats pelvic floor disorders that cause incontinence, constipation or sexual discomfort. These conditions affect approximately 50% of women — and can be caused by childbirth, aging, physical strain or other health issues. Our treatment approaches include both surgical and nonsurgical options.
