Care for Women with Abdominal, Bladder & Pelvic Health Conditions
In their lifetime, many women will suffer from chronic pain and other symptoms in their abdominal, bladder, and pelvic areas. Sometimes, even after gynecological assessment and treatment, these symptoms continue. Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital’s Center for Endometriosis, Pelvic Pain & Urogynecology may be able to help.

Our urogynecology center specializes in helping women who have been unable to find relief for symptoms such as:
- Ongoing pain, frequency, urgency and/or a feeling of pressure with urination or bowel movements.
- Urinary incontinence (leakage of urine without awareness).
- Fecal incontinence (leakage of stool without awareness)
- Continued pain after a hysterectomy.
- Pain in your lower back that cannot be explained by other causes.
- Pain during intercourse.
- Cramping (sometimes severe) or back pain during menstruation.
- Abnormal or heavy bleeding during periods.
- Difficulty becoming pregnant.

With more than 30 years of experience in helping women, including many who have struggled to find symptom relief, Maurice K. Chung, RPh, MD, FACOG, FPMRS, FACS, ACGE, urogynecologist, is more than a urologist for women / female urologist. As director of Mercy Hospital’s Center for Endometriosis, Pelvic Pain & Urogynecology, he is dedicated to uncovering the source of women’s abdominal, bladder, and pelvic pain, including underlying conditions that may be going undetected.
“Because pain is sometimes the primary issue, we must learn more about pain, including how to examine patients and choose the right procedure, in order to treat it effectively. Sometimes surgeries are successful; however, the patient may have other underlying organ conditions that generate the pain and that may not be recognized prior to surgery.” ¬– Maurice Chung, MD
