Specialty care for pelvic floor disorders
Urogynecology, also known as female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, is a subspecialty of gynecology and urology. Urogynecologists specialize in the care of women with pelvic floor disorders including vaginal wall prolapse, urine leakage, and stool leakage.
The pelvic organs include the vagina, cervix, uterus, bladder, urethra, small intestines, and rectum. These organs are held in place by muscles of the pelvic floor and layers of connective tissue called fascia. These supporting muscles and fascia may become torn, stretched, or weakened. In this condition, the tissue and muscles can no longer support the pelvic organs. As a result, the organs can drop downward.
