The field of Urogynecology (a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynecology) is dedicated to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders and support problems, such as vaginal, bladder, rectal and uterine prolapse, which can lead to voiding dysfunction, discomfort and/or pain.
Urogynecology also addresses women with urinary incontinence and other bladder problems. Our office provides state-of-the-art testing and treatment for these issues. Paula Naughton, RN, is our nurse specialist who works closely with our urogynecology patients.
