The field of urogynecology is a subspecialty within obstetrics and gynecology. It is dedicated to the study and treatment of urinary incontinence and pelvic floor disorders in women. Urinary tract problems and voiding difficulties can be caused by many conditions, including muscle weakness, infections, hormone imbalances, or neurological disorders.
What is Incontinence?
When you are not able to hold your urine until you can get to a bathroom, you have urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control). Incontinence is often a temporary problem, and it is always caused by an underlying medical condition.
What is Pelvic Health?
The symptoms that women experience in their pelvic or abdominal areas are often rooted in complex problems that can be challenging to diagnose and difficult to treat. Our multidisciplinary team will help to diagnose and treat these problems to return you to a state of pelvic health.
Urogynecologic services at The Chester County Hospital provide care for women suffering from urinary incontinence and related issues. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists works closely to provide the proper diagnostic tests and treatment.
Our advanced diagnostic procedures - including urodynamic studies offered in our women's health physician's offices - allow our gynecologists and urologists to pinpoint the cause of voiding problems and determine the best form of treatment. We offer a full range of the latest treatments for incontinence, ranging from medication to nonsurgical remedies to traditional and laparoscopic surgical techniques that can be performed on an outpatient basis.
Through our coordinated network of services, we work with each patient to create a personalized treatment plan and facilitate communication with referring physicians who are part of the Pelvic Health Program.
