Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

University of Louisville Urogynecology

The Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery focuses on the diagnosis and management of urinary and fecal incontinence; pelvic organ prolapse of the rectum, bladder, and uterus; pelvic pain; and over reactive bladder. Vaginal approach and advanced laparoscopy / robotic surgical reconstructive procedures offer less invasive treatment options.

Research focus includes clinical and basic science projects regarding pelvic floor disorders.

A three-year fellowship program offers a comprehensive approach to the subspecialty. Surgical education includes a balance of vaginal and open, laparoscopic, and robotic techniques. Emphasis is placed on preparing individuals for an academic career.

Unique opportunities include a laparoscopic dry lab dedicated to the fellowship, a fresh tissue cadaver lab with full laparoscopic set-up, and collaborative research opportunities with other University of Louisville clinicians and basic scientists. We train medical students and residents in obstetrics and gynecology, urology, and geriatric medicine.
