We provide a treatment plan for each patient’s individual needs. Our staff is experienced in discussing and evaluating these sensitive problems. A comprehensive evaluation may include:

  • Urinalysis
  • Bladder studies
  • Cystoscopy, in which a thin tube is placed inside the urethra to view the inside of the urethra and bladder
  • Urodynamic testing, an evaluation to check the function of the lower urinary tract which consists of the bladder, urethra and the voluntary and involuntary sphincter muscles
  • Bowel studies

Anorectal physiology studies, which are tests to evaluate the anal sphincter, pelvic muscles, nerve function and rectal function.

If you experience leaking of urine or difficulty controlling your bowels, you aren’t alone. Half of all women are likely to experience some incontinence in their lifetime and about 10% will have surgery for incontinence and/or prolapse – a bulging of the bladder, bowel or vagina often caused by weakened or damaged muscles from pregnancy and childbirth. Fortunately, most incontinence problems can be successfully treated, and women will find revolutionary new options available today at The University of Tennessee Medical Center’s Urogynecology office.

The specialists of UT Urogynecology provide professional and sensitive care for women with incontinence and pelvic floor disorders. Our program offers a full spectrum of one-on-one services for patients including:

  • Office fitting and placement of vaginal support device (pessary) for prolapse and stress urinary incontinence
  • Behavioral therapy, including pelvic floor muscle therapy for urinary and bowel incontinence (biofeedback and electrical stimulation as needed)
  • Surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and stress incontinence, including new minimally invasive vaginal, robotic and laparoscopic approaches
  • Neurostimulation therapy for refractory urge urinary incontinence, bowel incontinence, and voiding dysfunction
  • Botox therapy for refractory urge urinary incontinence

Our patients are provided a variety of highly effective, non-surgical approaches including medications, behavioral therapies, and support devices. For those who need surgery, the latest minimally invasive techniques usually allow women to go home the same day and recover quickly.

We would like to introduce ourselves and tell you a little about our practice.

Urogynecology, or female pelvic reconstructive surgery as it is formally known, is a specialty devoted to the female pelvic floor. A female pelvic reconstructive surgeon, or urogynecologist, seeks to provide treatment for urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and other pelvic floor related issues.

UT Urogynecology has been established to serve as a referral center for women of East Tennessee and the surrounding area who are suffering from pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, just to name a few.

At UT Urogynecology, we pledge to work extremely hard to provide the highest level of care to your patients. Whether it involves a routine bladder or pelvic problem, a complex pelvic condition, or a prior treatment failure, our center is committed to offering each patient an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment option.

The staff at UT Urogynecology looks forward to serving your patients in the form of consultation, with rapid responses and detailed accounts of the patient’s problem and suggested treatment strategies. We are always available to you, whether it is to provide a full consult, or answer a simple, over-the-phone question. If we can assist in the care of your patient in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.
