Advanced treatment for pelvic floor disorders
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center offers comprehensive testing, evaluation and treatment options for women diagnosed with a variety of pelvic floor disorders.
As a division of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, we provide the latest surgical, nonsurgical and behavioral therapies. Our goal is to provide the least invasive, most effective treatment possible.
If surgery is necessary, we may be able to offer robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System for a shorter hospital stay, easier recovery and minimal scarring.
We provide clinical care for women experiencing:
- Fecal incontinence
- Hematuria (blood in urine)
- Pelvic injuries
- Vesicovaginal fistulas (abnormal connection between the bladder and vagina, which allows urine to enter the vagina)
- Rectovaginal fistulas (abnormal connection between the rectum and vagina, which allows gas or stool to enter the vagina)
- Ureterovaginal fistulas (abnormal connection between the ureter and the vagina, which allows urine to enter the vagina)
- Urethral diverticuli (a pocket in the urethra pushing into the vagina)
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Cystocele (weakened muscles causing the bladder to bulge into the vagina)
- Rectocele (weakened muscles causing the rectum to bulge into the vagina)
- Uterine prolapse (weakened pelvic floor muscles causing the uterus to descend into the vagina)
- Vaginal prolapse (weakened pelvic floor muscles causing pelvic organs to bulge into the vaginal wall)
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Urinary incontinence (stress, urge, mixed, intrinsic sphincter deficiency, neurogenic)
- Urinary frequency, urgency and dysuria (painful urination)
- Voiding dysfunction
