Female Urology

Overview

The differences between the male and female urinary tracts lead to special conditions and problems that occur in women. Common examples would include bladder control problems during pregnancy, after childbirth, or after hysterectomy.

Our urology physicians have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating a variety of women's urological conditions including those listed below and more. 

Female Pelvic Prolapse – A condition in which the vagina and surrounding organs fall from their normal position

Bladder Control Problems – Bladder control problems range in type and severity. Types of bladder control issues treated by Emory Urology include frequent urination, urgent urination and overactive bladder.

Urinary Incontinence – Urinary incontinence, or the uncontrolled leakage of urine, is typically broken down into three main types.
