Cleveland Clinic Florida is at the forefront of technological advances in the field, enabling our gynecologists to provide minimally invasive, yet safe and effective treatments for common gynecologic problems that previously required more invasive procedures. Some of these include abnormal bleeding, uterine fibroids, urogynecology, as well as modern contraceptive techniques.

The Department effectively treats common gynecological conditions, including:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Adenomyosis, a uterine thickening condition
  • Adhesions (scar-like tissue)

  • Abnormal pap smears and cervicitis
  • Adult women’s health care

Physicians collaborate among different Cleveland Clinic Florida departments and specialists to give the patient the best care possible. The Pelvic Floor Center at Cleveland Clinic Florida embodies this model of coordinated and specialized care by integrating the departments of Urology, Gynecology and Colorectal Surgery into the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction problems, including fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, sexual dysfunction and complex lower urinary tract problems.  Cleveland Clinic Florida's Pelvic Floor Center has been designated a Center of Excellence (COE): Continence Care in Women by the National Association for Continence. Cleveland Clinic Florida is the first medical center on the east coast and the third in the nation to receive this designation.
