One in three women will have a pelvic floor disorder during their life. You might think that "dropped bladder," a vaginal bulge, urinary leakage or other pelvic floor conditions are just a part of getting older. However, these conditions are not a normal part of aging and can be treated. Nebraska Medicine board-certified urogynecologists have specialized training in treating conditions that affect the pelvic organs and the surrounding muscles and connective tissues that support these organs.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Pelvic organ prolapse: Dropping of pelvic organs (bladder, uterus or rectum) into or outside of the vagina caused by a loss of vaginal support.
  • Urinary incontinence: Leakage of urine with coughing, sneezing and activities or difficulty holding urine when having the urge to urinate.
  • Fecal incontinence: Involuntary loss of bowel control or accidental bowel leakage.
  • Fistulas: Abnormal communication or a hole between the vagina and rectum (rectovaginal fistula), vagina and bladder (vesicovaginal fistula), vagina and urethra (urethrovaginal fistula) or the uterus and surrounding organs.

We understand how pelvic floor disorders can negatively impact your life, but you don’t have to live in discomfort. Our team of experts are here to help you regain your confidence and quality of life.

What to expect

At your first appointment, you will meet with a urogynecologist to discuss your medical history, including any existing health conditions. Your provider will perform a thorough evaluation and may order additional tests to assess your condition. They will review treatment options and work with you to develop a personalized care plan that meets your goals. We offer a wide range of treatment options, including surgery (minimally invasive surgical operation or in-office procedures) and non-surgical methods such as physical therapy or medication.
