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.
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.
