The Pelvic Floor Center provides diagnosis, consultation and innovative care options for:
· Fecal and urinary incontinence
· Urinary retention and other voiding dysfunctions
· Chronic constipation
· Pelvic organ prolapse
· Rectal cancer
Although most of these disorders are not life threatening, these health issues affect a broad range of patients and can have a devastating effect on quality of life.
We offer the following urodynamic services:
Urodynamics/Video Urodynamics – Bladder testing used to assess causes of urinary problems including incontinence, urgency and difficulty emptying. May be done with or without fluoroscopy.
PNE (Peripheral Nerve Evaluation) - Determines whether sacral nerve stimulation for the control of lower urinary tract dysfunction is appropriate for a given patient. A temporary device is used and, if successful, surgery to implant a permanent device would be the next option.
Biofeedback - (Pelvic Floor Muscle retraining) – can treat incontinence (fecal and urinary) as well as constipation caused by non-relaxation of the pelvic floor. Sensors are used while a nurse coaches the patient to correctly exercise and relax the pelvic floor muscles. Learn more.
