Female Urology



The pelvic floor is a medical term used to describe the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that provide support for internal organs, which in women consist of the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. The female pelvic floor is designed to prevent these organs from falling down or out, as well as help these organs function properly. Millions of women in the United States alone suffer from pelvic floor problems. Many of those who seek treatment from medical centers like Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona are able to live a better quality of life.

The Urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona specialize in the field of urogynecology, or the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic floor conditions. The type of female urological problems we see at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona can range from enlarged clitoral tissue and vaginal prolapse (weakened vaginal walls or tissue descending from the vaginal opening) to kidney stones and urinary incontinence (urine leakage). Some women who experience these and other pelvic floor problems feel uncomfortable talking about their condition or reviewing symptoms with their healthcare provider. The urologic specialists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona understand that initiating the conversation can be difficult. Together, the Urologists and medical staff strive to create a comfortable environment where we are able to make a sensitive topic a little easier to discuss.

Conditions, such as an overactive bladder or voiding dysfunction can have a major impact on just about every aspect of your life, causing you to avoid vacations and other special events out of the fear that your condition will trigger at the wrong time and embarrass you.
