Urogynecology FAQs with Dr. Saraswathi Ramesh

 Urogynecology is a specialized field that deals with pelvic floor disorders in women. This includes issues with bladder control, pelvic support, and bowel function. Common problems we treat include urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and fecal incontinence.

Consider making an appointment if you experience frequent urinary tract infections, pain in the pelvic area, urinary or fecal leakage, or if you feel a bulge in your vagina, which could be a sign of prolapse.

 On your first visit, I'll talk with you about your medical history and symptoms. This will be followed by a physical exam, which usually includes a pelvic exam. We might also do some tests like an ultrasound or bladder function tests to help diagnose your condition.

Many pelvic floor issues can be managed without surgery. Treatment options may include pelvic floor exercises, changes in diet, medications, or lifestyle adjustments. We also use techniques like biofeedback to help strengthen the pelvic muscles.

Surgery is considered if other treatments haven’t worked or if your condition is affecting your quality of life. We’ll discuss all options thoroughly, focusing on your specific symptoms and needs, to determine the best course of action.

We use minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery, which generally involve less pain and quicker recovery. We also perform surgeries for correcting prolapse and incontinence, tailored to your specific condition.

Preparation might include getting lab tests done, adjusting your current medications, and following specific eating and drinking instructions. We will provide you with all the necessary pre-surgery instructions to ensure you're fully prepared.

After treatment, we'll schedule follow-up visits to check on your recovery and discuss any further care needed. We also offer advice on exercises and lifestyle changes to help you maintain your health.
