Women visit the physician experts at Ohio State for the care of genitourinary conditions (related to the reproductive or urinary system) that are often associated with an area of the body called “the pelvic floor.”
The pelvic floor is composed of the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that help support and control the bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum. The pelvic floor can be damaged by childbirth, repeated heavy lifting, chronic disease or surgery.
Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is a subspecialty of Urology that focuses on the surgical and non-surgical treatment of pelvic floor disorders.
Irene Crescenze, MD provides expert care for women. Dr. Crescenze specializes in female urinary and fecal incontinence; voiding dysfunction including frequency, urgency, pain and urinary retention, hematuria; medical and surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse; repair of complex genitourinary defects, such as urethral diverticuli and fistulas; and birthing-related injuries.
