If you are a woman living with a painful bladder, pelvic prolapse or urinary incontinence, we offer superior comprehensive care. No matter your age or activity level, our doctors have the experience for dealing with complex urologic conditions.

Bladder and Urinary Care

Urologic conditions are a very sensitive topic. As a result, women tend to wait an average of 6.5 years from when they first experience symptoms to when they obtain a diagnosis conditions such as:

  • Incontinence
  • Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
  • Overactive bladder (OAB)
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Voiding dysfunction

Stone Disease Care

Stones in the urologic system are a common health problem, occurring in up to 12 percent of the population during their lifetime, according to the American Urologic Association. It occurs when mineral and acid salts or mineral deposits crystalize into stones, which can cause a blockage. Stones can occur in the bladder, urinary tract or kidneys.
