Women's Center for Bladder and Pelvic Health

Women’s Center for Bladder and Pelvic Health

The Women’s Center for Bladder and Pelvic Health at Magee is a multidisciplinary resource with a comprehensive, women-centered approach.

Women of all ages and races can suffer from bladder and pelvic floor disorders. The pelvic floor is a combination of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues that support the pelvic organs — the bladder, vagina, uterus, and rectum. The pelvic floor can be weakened by a combination of factors such as childbirth, heavy lifting, the effects of menopause and aging, and other chronic medical and neurologic conditions.

Although problems do become more common with advancing age, even young women can be affected.​

Reasons to Visit Our Center

Referrals to the center can be made through a patients primary care physician or gynecologist. Many women self-refer, so a physician's referral is not necessary.

Some of the symptoms women experience can include:

  • Leaking of urine or stool
  • Difficulty with bowel movements
  • Pelvic pain or pressure

Pelvic floor disorders significantly compromise the quality of women’s lives, which may result in depression, social isolation, and avoidance of physical and sexual activity due to discomfort and embarrassment. Our experts are dedicated to improving the quality of our patients' lives.
