Female Pelvic Health
A urogynecologist is an Ob/Gyn surgeon who specializes in urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic floor disorders. The pelvic floor is made up of ligaments and muscles – including the cervix, vagina, uterus, bladder, urethra and rectum – that help control urinary and bowel function.
Scott & White has urogynecologists who have received specialty board certification in female medicine pelvic and reconstructive surgery, which means extra training in the evaluation and treatment of women with complex disorders of the pelvic floor.
Scott & White also has one of the fewer than 50 female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery fellowships in the United States, which provides our urogynecologists opportunities to participate in research for prolapse and incontinence.

Surgical and Non-surgical Treatment Options
Not every urinary or pelvic floor disorder requires a surgical solution.After the appropriate evaluation of bladder function and pelvic organ prolapse, patients are offered a variety of surgical or non-surgical options.
Non-surgical options can include medical management, the use of support devices such as pessaries and pelvic floor physical therapy. Surgical options may include surgical management of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and prolapse of the bladder, uterus, cul-de-sac, rectum or vaginal vault.
