Naples Premier Urogynecology Practice - Blending Gynecology and Urology Just For Women
Are pelvic floor disorders or incontinence causing you pain or embarrassment? Do you want to gain control of these urology, gynecology and gastroenterology issues? Have you been to a urologist or gynecologist and not gotten the relief you are looking for?
There have been tremendous gains in the past decade in the diagnosis and treatment of female incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and complex female pelvic disorders. A new subspecialty called Female Pelvic Medicine & Reproductive Surgery (a.k.a. Urogynecology) was developed to harness this knowledge to benefit women of all ages. A Urogynecologist has advanced training in treating these disorders that a gynecologist and a urologist may not have. A gynecologist specializes in the female reproductive system (vagina, uterus and ovaries) and a urologist specializes in the urinary tract of both men and women. A urogynecologist blends the knowledge of a gynecologist and urologist to give women the best possible outcomes for disorders that effect these two closely integrated systems.
The Florida Bladder Institute, based in Naples Florida, is one of the country's first urogynecology practices. Typically, a woman would have to see a gynecologist for one problem, a urologist for another and a gastroenterologist for another. The founder of the Florida Bladder Institute, Dr. Joseph Gauta, explains that “A Urogynecologist has the skill and experience to assess the entire pelvic region including the uterus, bladder, vagina and rectum as well as the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that support those systems.” He added, "This means a thorough evaluation is done of your urinary, lower gastrointestinal and reproductive systems as a whole to insure you receive the best possible treatment and outcome in the most efficient and cost effective manner."
