Treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence
and Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the loss of urine that occurs during normal physical activities that put pressure or stress on the bladder, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, and exercising. One-third of women over age 45, and about half of all women over the age of 65, have or experience stress urinary incontinence.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when the pelvic floor muscles weaken, causing the pelvic organs to fall into the vagina. Women may experience pressure or feel a bulge near the opening of the vagina. POP is sometimes referred to as a "dropped bladder”, dropped uterus", "dropped vagina", or "dropped rectum”. POP occurs up to 50% of women over age 50.

What Is A Urogynecologist?

A urogynecologist is a surgeon specially trained to diagnose and treat women with pelvic floor disorders. Urogynecologists receive certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the American Board of Urology to affirm their expertise in this subspecialty.
