Urogynecologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic floor disorders. They help women with problems like urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, and pelvic organ prolapse.
These doctors focus on the pelvic organs, such as the vagina, uterus, rectum, and bladder. They prescribe medicines, perform surgery, and treat non-cancerous conditions. They also treat problems with the pelvic floor. This is the muscles, ligaments, nerves, and other tissues that support the pelvic organs and help control their functions.
