As women age and go through various hormonal and physical changes, it's not uncommon for them to experience pelvic floor disorders. These can range from urinary incontinence to pelvic organ prolapse and can be both physically and emotionally debilitating. Many women accept these changes as a part of the natural aging process and often do not seek help for bothersome symptoms.
A urogynecologist is an ObGyn with additional training in the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, making them the ideal specialist to address these problems. While other doctors, such as urologists, also operate on the urinary system, urogynecologists have a deep understanding of female anatomy and the unique challenges that come with aging, childbirth, and hormonal changes. They offer a range of treatments including pelvic floor physical therapy, Botox injections, hormone replacement therapy, and minimally invasive procedures to correct prolapse.
With their advanced training and focus on women's wellness, urogynecologists can provide you with the expert care you need to overcome your symptoms. Schedule a consultation at Women’s Pelvic Surgery of NJ and we’ll help you regain your confidence and get back to living your life to the fullest.
