About Lynn Pattimakiel, MD

Lynn Pattimakiel, M.D. is a board certified internist, currently working as staff at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus and Center for Specialized Women’s Health. She received her M.D. from the University of Debrecen, Hungary, and completed her residency training in Internal Medicine at St. Vincent Charity Hospital in Cleveland. She completed a 2 year fellowship in Women’s Health at the Cleveland Clinic. She is a certified menopause practitioner. Her special interests include menopause, hormone therapy, osteoporosis and female sexual dysfunction. She helps to lecture and supervise medical residents in their clinical activity.

In the Center for Specialized Women’s Health, we pursue leading edge therapies for women. There are several new FDA approved pelvic floor stimulators that are available for women with urine leakage and pelvic muscle weakness as well as fecal incontinence and mild degrees of pelvic organ prolapse. These new pelvic floor stimulation devices are custom-fit and use stimulation to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and inhibit overactive bladder muscles while giving visual biofeedback and audible guidance. Precise adjustments can be made to ensure effective muscle training. Some women, who have only stress urinary leakage, and/or are 6 weeks post partum from vaginal delivery, may need simpler devices and all therapies can be done in the comfort and privacy of ones home. These devices can compliment, or in many cases be used instead of surgery or medications.
