Biographical Sketch

Mary Clarkin CNP, MS is a Womens Health Nurse Practitioner working at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus at the Center for Specialized Womens Health. She received her MS from Virginia Commonwealth University, Medical College of VA and certification as a nurse practitioner from NCC in Womens Health. She is a certified menopause practitioner through NAMS. Her special interests include: menopause, hormone therapy, gynecological care for women of all ages, contraception, vaginitis, and osteoporosis. She precepts NP students and physicians who are completing their fellowships in Women's health.

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.
