Specializing in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery
The Center for Restorative Pelvic Medicine is the first of its kind in the greater Houston area and is still one of the few centers in the country that offers a single-center location for the diagnosis and treatment of complex pelvic-floor disorders. Urogynecologists – specialty physicians trained in the areas of urology and gynecology – as well as traditional gynecologists and colorectal surgeons provide the most advanced care available for women and men with problems related to the lower urinary tract and the pelvic floor.
The specialists at the Center for Restorative Pelvic Medicine will make your experience as comfortable as possible as they partner with you and your own doctor to develop the best treatment plan for you. The physicians, nurses and support staff that make up your medical team have many years of experience in dealing with these very personal conditions.
Your medical team may consult with a range of other specialists including:
- Colorectal surgeons
- Pain management physicians
- Physical therapists
- Plastic surgeons
The Center provides consultation for the full range of conditions that involve the pelvic-floor and lower-urinary tract including the following:
- Urinary incontinence – the inability to control bladder function or leaking urine
- Fecal incontinence – the inability to control bowel function or leaking stool or gas
- Urinary or rectal fistula - an abnormal connection between the urinary tract or the bowel resulting in uncontrolled loss of urine or stool
- Pelvic-organ prolapse – the dropping or “falling” of the bladder, rectum, bowel, uterus or vagina from normal position
- Congenital abnormalities – pelvic-floor disorders including congenital vaginal agenesis or Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome
- Urethral masses – such as urethral diverticuli (bulging pouches along the urethra)
- Birth injuries to the pelvic floor
- Prior traumatic injuries, surgical procedures or radiation treatments
The pelvic floor is the group of muscles, ligaments and nerves that support and help control the vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum. Pelvic-floor disorders such as pelvic-organ prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence or difficulty urinating can sometimes be embarrassing, difficult to talk about and can affect the quality of your life. It is important that you speak with your doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms.
Working closely with your own doctor, your Center for Restorative Pelvic Medicine team will suggest a complete treatment plan for your specific condition and needs. Our goal is to return you to your doctor's care, either fully recovered or with a plan that you and your doctor can manage together.
Treatment options may include:
- Diet and behavior modification
- Pelvic floor exercises
- Physical therapy
The Center for Restorative Pelvic Medicine also offers minimally invasive robotic surgery for women's pelvic surgery procedures, including procedures for vaginal prolapse and incontinence including sacrocolpopexy, hysterectomy, vesicovaginal fistula repair, uterosacral ligament repair and ureteral reimplants.
