A Pelvic Floor Disorders Clinic for Incontinence, Constipation and Other Problems
The term pelvic floor disorders is used to describe a wide range of problems that occur due to weakness, injury or dysfunction of the nerves, muscles, ligaments or connective tissue in the pelvis. This allows the bladder, urethra, small intestine, rectum, uterus or vagina to drop, become weak or malfunction. As a result, patients may experience embarrassing problems such as urinary or fecal incontinence, anorectal pain or dyssynergic defecation, which leads to chronic constipation.
But the specialists at our Pelvic Floor Disorders Clinic have the skills and technology to diagnose the problem and design a plan of care just for you.
The clinic offers:
- A multidisciplinary team that includes gastroenterologists, urologists, urogynecologists, colorectal surgeons, radiologists and psychologists
- Registered dieticians
- The latest diagnostic tests and treatment protocols
- Care, medical management and surgery for fecal and urinary incontinence, dyssynergic defection, anorectal pain and other pelvic floor disorders

- Bowel control management
