Center for Pelvic Health


The University of Chicago Center for Pelvic Health is dedicated to helping patients overcome the physical, emotional and social issues surrounding pelvic floor disorders.

Incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders are widespread and affect women and men of all ages. Yet these conditions are greatly undertreated, leaving millions of people to struggle with symptoms that can, and should, receive medical care.

The experts at the University of Chicago Center for Pelvic Health are committed to helping patients, including those who have been treated unsuccessfully elsewhere, find relief from their conditions so they can live their lives to their fullest.

At the University of Chicago Center for Pelvic Health, women and men of all ages benefit from the combined expertise of a team of subspecialists, whose depth of expertise is unique in the region.

Our team includes specialists in urogynecology, urology, gastroenterology, colorectal surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, radiology, physical therapy and nursing. Many of our physicians are nationally recognized for their commitment to diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, fecal incontinence, pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic organ prolapse.

Coordinated, Personalized Care

Together, our specialists provide a full range of coordinated diagnostic and therapeutic services, delivered in a caring, sensitive manner. Patients receive care that is tailored to their individual needs and preferences.

To help patients through their care, a nurse coordinator serves as their main point of contact, helping them schedule appointments and receive the services they need throughout the Medical Center. Patients receive care in a relaxed, private environment that is dedicated to treating pelvic floor disorders.
