Female Urology Treatments

Physicians at Emory’s Department of Urology provide treatments for a variety of conditions affecting women including: urethral diverticulum; pelvic prolapse; and pelvic floor disorders. Non-operative therapies and minimally invasive procedures to treat vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, neurogenic and overactive bladder are also available. We understand that many women feel uncomfortable discussing these conditions and the importance of creating a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere for our patients.

Non-Surgical Options

Medical, behavioral and physical therapies can be use to treat certain bladder control problems.

Female Incontinence Surgery

In patients with anatomical problems such as prolapse or those who do not respond to medication, surgery can be performed. If surgery is necessary, it is critical that all anatomical problems be corrected for best results.

Neuromodulation Therapy

Some bladder symptoms are due to problems of neuromuscular coordination or control. This therapy is used to treat urge incontinence, symptoms of frequency and urgency, and also for problems of non-obstructed urinary retention or incomplete emptying.

Robotic Pelvic Floor Surgery

Robotic pelvic floor surgery can restore natural anatomic structures allowing for improved continence. Surgeries performed using the daVinci robots typically result in less pain and quicker recovery.
