As many as 50 to 70 percent of all women experience incontinence in their lifetime, and 11 percent of all women have surgery for pelvic organ prolapse.
Though incontinence may be an isolated problem, it often includes pelvic organ prolapse and disorders of the pelvic organs. Physicians trained in urogynecology view the pelvis as a whole and design treatments to address all problems.
Surgical and non-surgical treatment options are available. Patients help decide the treatment based on their unique problems.
When the cause of the problem is pinpointed, all options are discussed and a customized course of treatment is designed. Throughout this entire process, primary care and/or referring physicians remain an important part of the treatment team.
