The overarching goal of the Urogynecology Division at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is to provide compassionate, competent care to women suffering from pelvic floor disorders. We are a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, physical therapists and imaging specialists who treat the full spectrum of pelvic floor disorders. In addition, our team works closely with urologists, gastroenterologists and colorectal surgeons so that women with these common disorders can have their problems addressed by the appropriate specialist.
We treat women of all ages with pelvic floor disorders such as pelvic organ prolapse, overactive bladder, urinary and anal incontinence, and defacatory dysfunction. Thorough evaluations are performed in a caring environment. Evaluations may include urodynamic testing, specialized 3-D pelvic floor imaging, office cystoscopy and neurological evaluation.
We work with our patients to develop comprehensive, individualized treatment plans. Many conservative and surgical treatment options are available including physical therapy, pessary care, pharmacologic treatments, InterStim therapy (bladder pace-maker) for urinary and fecal incontinence, in office procedures and minimally invasive surgery including the DaVinci Robot.
Our center has been awarded the Continence Care Championship Award from the National Association for Continence, for excellence in the care of women with pelvic floor dysfunction. In addition to excellent clinical care, UNM's Urogynecology Clinic is a member of the National Institutes of Health's Pelvic Floor Disorders Network, a distinction that is shared by only seven other leading institutions in the USA. In addition to offering the latest surgical therapies and conservative treatments available, the Urogynecology Division has multiple on-going clinic trials that women may choose to participate in. In conclusion, the Urogynecology Clinic is a leader in the field for the treatment of urinary and anal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse for New Mexican women.
