Our certified specialists offer individualized care to patients in Melrose, Medford, and throughout the northern suburbs regain function, experience the best possible outcomes, and discover the confidence to get back to the things they enjoy. Our pelvic health program brings together a multidisciplinary team of gynecologists and gastroenterologists, as well as physical and behavioral health therapists, to offer the very best options in pelvic care.

Pelvic conditions treated

Each member of our team specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, a term applied to conditions that affect the pelvic organs. Our experts treat a variety of patients — from those with routine problems to others who require additional specialized testing, therapy, and surgical treatment. Some of the conditions we commonly address include:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Neuro-urologic disorders
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Structural abnormalities of the pelvic floor (rectocele, cystocele, enterocele, sigmoidocele)
  • Pelvic pain

While pelvic floor dysfunction affects both men and women, it is generally more prevalent in women.  Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can have a negative impact on quality of life for affected patients.

Our pelvic health program provides multidisciplinary pelvic care to ensure patients receive individualized therapy of the highest quality. To ease the patient’s burden of pursuing integrated care for pelvic floor disorders, specialists from MelroseWakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford collaborate as a team to ensure easily accessible and coordinated care for our patients.
