UROGYN_ Banner

Urogynecology, also known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology focused on the function and dysfunction of the structures and systems of the female pelvis (for example, urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse).

When you are seen at WHCMA Center for Pelvic Medicine, Dr. Patterson may recommend additional testing depending upon your particular symptom(s).   Urodynamic evaluations and cystoscopies are performed on-site at both Worcester and Marlborough offices.

Treatments available for incontinence, prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders include:

  • Lifestyle and behavioral changes
  • Pelvic floor muscle exercises
  • Medication
  • Pessaries
  • Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS)
  • InterStim Neuromodulation
  • Surgery
