The Women's Institute for Pelvic Health
- Do you plan your day around access to restrooms?
- Do you leak urine involuntarily or when laughing, sneezing or exercising?
- Do you have unexplained pelvic pain?
- Do you have trouble resisting the urge to urinate?
- Do you prefer alternatives to surgery?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone! Recent studies have shown that approximately one-third of all U.S. women (over 10 million) will have a pelvic health problem by age 60.

WISH provides a multi-specialty approach for Women's Pelvic Health with board certified and fellowship trained Urologists and UroGynecologists in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as female sexual health specialists working together for the treatment of:
- Bladder pain - bladder pain is a common symptom of Interstitial Cystitis (IC), and can vary from milk to severe pain
- Dysfunction voiding - Many people believe that difficulty urinating is just another symptom of aging; however, there is often an underlying cause for the difficulty that should be evaluated by a provider
- Fecal incontinence - The involuntary loss of bowel control is often treatable with medication, lifestyle measures, or surgical repair of the damaged sphincter muscles
- Fistula repair - The option of a procedure that would surgically repair the abnormal tract between the large intestine, rectum, and vagina, in women
- Pelvic organ prolapse (vaginal relaxation) - Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when pelvic structures, such as the bladder, uterus or rectum, bulge or protrude into the vaginal wall. This often results in pressure, discomfort and even vaginal pain
- Sexual dysfunction - Our Women's Institute (WISH) provides specialized care to women facing the unique challenges of sexual function and pelvic conditions. It is our mission to educate, treat and nurture each woman's need for sexual individuality and better pelvic health
- Urinary incontinence - Female urinary incontinence affect millions of women in the U.S. both young and old. There are a number of viable treatments for urinary incontinence and your WISH clinician is committed to helping restore your quality of life
- Vaginal mesh revisions
- Vaginal pain - Typically an irritation of the vagina caused by a thinning and shrinking of the vaginal tissues and decreased lubrication of the vaginal walls
- Vaginal scar revision - Scar hypertrophy, which can cause severe pain during intercourse, can usually be improved by surgical revision of the scar tissue
Our pelvic health specialists have access to treat all conditions with state-of-the-art technology ranging from minimally invasive treatment options, including multichannel urodynamic evaluations and the MonaLisa Touch laser, to robotic surgical systems.
