The practice of urogynecology goes hand-in-hand with gynecology, in fact, many doctors choose to study both practices to further help their patients. As a separate form of study from gynocology or obstetrics, extra training as an urogynecologist allows for medical treatment and diagnoses with the pelvic organs, musciles, connective tissues that house and support the female organs.
Urogynecology most often includes treatment of the pelvic floor, incontinence or leakage (also known as urinary incontinence), pelvic organ prolapse (a dropping of the vagina, uterus, cystocele, and/or rectocele), and overactive bladders.
Depending on the condition and recommended treatment, various treatment methods might be recommended. Such as non-surgical, surgical, laparoscopic surgery, PTNS, and more.
