What is a Urogynecologist?
Conditions treated by a urogynecologist include:
A urogynecologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of female urologic and pelvic problems. After medical school, urogynecologists either complete a four year OB/GYN residency with a three year fellowship, or a five year Urology residency with a two year fellowship in order to provide care in this specialized field.
What should I look for in a Urogynecologist?
It is important to look for someone you are comfortable with. These health conditions are private and potentially embarrassing. It is important that you trust and feel comfortable discussing your condition with the healthcare provider.
Fellowship training is also an important qualification, particularly if you need surgery. Fellowship-trained urogynecologists have advanced specialized training in diverse surgical techniques and can counsel you on the latest research evidence behind an intervention.
WakeMed offers personal care by a fellowship-trained urogynecologist. We are committed to helping women find safe, effective options to help them regain their quality of life.
