Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is the descending or drooping of the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel or rectum outside of the vaginal canal or anus. Symptoms depend on which organ has prolapsed but may include urine leakage, constipation, painful intercourse, vaginal spotting and back pain. Prolapse is caused by anything that increases pressure on the abdomen including pregnancy, obesity, constipation, pelvic cancers and more.
It is important for patients to discuss these problems with their urologist to ensure they enjoy a successful treatment outcome. These problems can be treated successfully if they are correctly diagnosed and the appropriate therapy is selected. Therapies include:

- Behavior Modification

Urinary incontinence, the loss of voluntary control over urinary function, affects more than a third of adult Americans. Stress incontinence happens when you sneeze, cough, laugh, exercise or do other things that put pressure on your bladder. It is the most common type of bladder control problem in women.
Urge incontinence happens when you have an overwhelming need to urinate but can’t reach the toilet in time. Sometimes there is no warning before an accidental urine leak. Overactive bladder (OAB) is a type of urge incontinence.
There are three levels of treatment from conservative to surgical that our physicians will work through with you to provide relief for incontinence.
- Level one treatment includes physical therapy, dietary modifications including limiting caffeine and alcohol and lifestyle changes like not drinking fluids two to three hours before bed.
- Level two treatment includes prescription medications. There are nearly a dozen different medicines that can help calm an overactive bladder.
- Level three treatment includes advanced therapies including nerve stimulation or bladder injections with Botox.
