Jefferson's experienced gynecologists in the Division of Urogynecology are fellowship trained in the specialty of urogynecology, the specialty which treats illnesses related to female urinary incontinence and pelvic relaxation problems.
Our urogynecologists have expertise in treating women with urinary incontinence (loss of urine without control) and pelvic organ prolapse (dropped bladders, wombs and rectums), two very common conditions affecting women ages 35 and older. Although not life-threatening, these conditions can greatly interfere with a woman's quality of life, restricting both her physical and social activities, while causing great emotional distress.
Division specialists present both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to women who seek help for their condition in order to make the most informed choice.
Our specialists are also very active members of the American Urogynecologic Society, a national leader in education and research in incontinence and prolapse, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
