Professor of Urology
Female urologic disorders can be debilitating, inconvenient, and difficult to discuss for our female patients. Our urologists understand the highly sensitive nature of these issues, and are committed to your physical and emotional comfort.
Because more than one disorder can occur simultaneously: urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and/or fecal incontinence, at Yale Urology, our multidisciplinary team includes urologists, uro-gynecologists, gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, radiologists, and nurse practitioners who work together to identify and treat your pelvic floor disorder (PFD).
We understand this can have a big impact on your daily life, and we are committed to working with you, understanding your personal situation, and arriving at the best possible treatment options for you—to help you get your life back.
Innovative and Minimally Invasive Treatments
Our state-of-the-art facilities can provide the convenience of on-site diagnostic procedures, helping our team develop an informed treatment plan. And if that plan should include surgery, we prioritize minimally-invasive procedures to help reduce your recovery time. We believe that the simplest, least invasive treatment options for PFDs should be tried first. Treatment approaches will be tailored to your specific needs and may include pelvic floor physical therapy, self-management strategies, medications, and/or surgery.
If surgery is necessary, we are committed to helping you to thoroughly understand every aspect of the process and to answer all of your questions. Our surgeons are highly skilled in both traditional and minimally invasive surgeries, including robotic and trans-vaginal surgeries. Our urologists are knowledgeable regarding the latest treatments.
