Pelvic Floor and Urogynecologic Disorders
The specialists of the UAB Division of Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery provide professional and sensitive care for women with incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders.
Half of all women are likely to experience some incontinence in their lifetime, and about 10 percent will have surgery for incontinence and/or prolapse—a bulging of the bladder or vagina often caused by weakened muscles from pregnancy or childbirth. Fortunately, most incontinence problems can be successfully treated.
Our physicians offer a full spectrum of one-on-one services for patients, including:
- Comprehensive clinical evaluation (Learn more by downloading the Urogynecology & Testing document under Related Documents at right)
