What is a Urogynecologist?

A urogynecologist is a physician who specializes in disorders of the pelvic floor. It combines knowledge of both urology and gynecology to help diagnose and treat symptoms. Often, a urogynecologist works to restore the pelvic floor anatomy that has weakened.

How Does a Urogynecologist Differ from a Gynecologist?

Gynecologists specialize in the health of the female reproductive system. This includes the uterus, cervix, vagina, and ovaries.

Urologists specialize in diagnosing and treating urinary tract disorders for female and male patients, along with the male reproductive system. Urologists have specialty training in both conservative treatments and surgical management of the kidneys and urinary tract.

Urogynecologists specialize in treating women with complex benign pelvic conditions, including lower urinary tract and sexual health disorders. They are trained in the comprehensive management of pelvic floor conditions.

What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor muscles are located between the tailbone and the pubic bone within the pelvis. They support the bowel and bladder.

In females, the pelvic floor muscles also support the uterus and the vagina. These muscular bands are called sphincters to encircle the urethra, vagina, and anus as they pass through the pelvic floor. If the pelvic floor muscles become weak, you may experience prolapse, where there is no longer enough support for the uterus. You may also experience incontinence or the loss of bladder control.

When Should I Seek Help from a Urogynecologist?

If you have had uncomfortable symptoms with your pelvic floor, seek help from a urogynecologist. Often, you can talk about your medical history and any concerns you may have.

What may have become normal to you may not be normal to others. It is possible to live a life free from pain, discomfort, or other setbacks that you may experience.
