Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

Why Yale Urology

Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) is a sub-specialty that evaluates and treats women with a variety of PFDs such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and fecal incontinence.

At Yale Urology, our multidisciplinary team works together to evaluate and treat your pelvic floor disorder (PFD). Because more than one PFD can occur simultaneously—including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and fecal incontinence—our team includes urologists, uro-gynecologists, gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, radiologists, and nurse practitioners. At Yale, we gather the most knowledgeable and compassionate specialists together in one place and we take the time to listen to what matters most to you. We understand that your PFD is having a big impact on your daily life. We are committed to working with you, understanding your unique experience with PFD, and arriving at the best possible treatment options for you—to help you get your life back.

Innovative Treatments

At Yale, 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 physicians are knowledgeable regarding the latest treatments and seek to improve our treatments through research.  Members of our team have been investigators in seminal clinical trials which determined best treatment options for urinary incontinence.
