Urogynecology and Incontinence

Helping You Take Control

Pelvic floor disorders can make you may feel like you've lost control. We can help you regain it.

Pelvic floor disorders are a group of conditions that affect the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor includes the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue in the lowest part of the pelvis. It supports your organs, including the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. The pelvic floor prevents these organs from falling down or out of your body. It also helps the organs function properly.

Our Program

Millions of Americans dismiss pelvic floor and urinary problems as “part of the aging process,” which could not be further from the truth. Pelvic floor disorders are painful and uncomfortable, and difficult to talk about.

One in three women suffers from pelvic floor disorders. While these problems can have a huge impact on a woman’s ability to go about her daily life, many women suffer with these problems for years before seeking help. The good news is that while these problems are common, they need not put your life on hold.

The Urogynecology program at Southern Ocean Medical Center diagnoses treats and educates women experiencing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and Urinary Incontinence. Our expert physicians, nurses and physical therapists are available to explain the symptoms you are experiencing.
