The Section of Urogynecology/Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at the OB/GYN & Women’s Health Institute at the Cleveland Clinic is dedicated to serving women with pelvic floor disorders with innovative treatment that spans from non-surgical to minimally invasive surgical options. We offer a breadth of minimally invasive surgery: vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic-assisted laparoscopic approaches, which have the advantage of same day surgery and no overnight stay, small or no abdominal incisions, less pain, blood loss, and infections, and earlier return to activities. Our team has conducted the seminal trials and pioneered the gold standard surgical techniques in urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and other pelvic floor conditions. We value a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach that often incorporates female urology, colorectal surgery, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
