At the AAMC Women’s Center for Pelvic Health we provide a variety of treatments and proceduresfor many different types of pelvic issues.
Conditions We Treat Include:
A Pessary is a device that is inserted into the vagina to help hold up the vaginal walls and possibly prevent urine leakage. You will need to remove the pessary regularly to clean it. Pessaries may provide an alternative to surgical correction of a prolapsed bladder or uterus.
Collagen injections can help strengthen the sphincter muscles that allow your body to hold in urine. Collagen, found throughout your body in bones, skin and other tissues, is injected into the wall of the urethra to help stop urine leakage.
Nerve Stimulators are used to identify and strengthen muscles in the pelvic region. This non-invasive method helps activate nerve and muscle mechanisms, often relieving various types of incontinence.
Sling procedures use strips of your body's tissue, or other materials such as mesh, to create a pelvic sling or hammock around the bladder neck and urethra. The sling helps keep the urethra closed, especially in stress situations--for example, when you cough or sneeze.
