Stress Incontinence
Stress incontinence is the involuntary leaking of urine during physical movement and activities such as coughing, sneezing, running, or heavy lifting.  These activities put stress on your bladder and over time, the muscles and other tissues that support the bladder (pelvic floor muscles) and the muscles that regulate the release of urine (urinary sphincter) weaken. If you have stress incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your work and social life, especially exercise and leisure activities. With treatment, you’ll likely be able to manage stress incontinence and improve your overall well-being. Please contact our office at 501-224-5500 to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified physicians.

Pelvic Prolapse

The “pelvic floor” is a group of muscles that form a kind of hammock across your pelvic opening. Normally, these muscles and the tissues surrounding them keep the pelvic organs in place. These organs include your bladder (cystocele), uterus (uterine prolapse), vagina (vaginal vault prolapse), small bowel (enterocele), and rectum (rectocele). Sometimes, these muscles and tissue develop problems. Some women develop pelvic floor disorders following childbirth. As women age, pelvic organ prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders become more common. Our physicians are trained to diagnose and treat pelvic prolapse. To schedule a consultation, please contact our office at 501-224-5500.

Uterine Prolapse

Uterine prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken, providing inadequate support for the uterus. The uterus then slips down into or protrudes out of the vagina. Uterine prolapse can happen to women of any age, but it often affects postmenopausal women who’ve had one or more vaginal deliveries. Our board-certified physicians are trained to provide non-surgical and surgical care for this condition. We utilize lifestyle modification, pessary insertion, and physical therapy as our first-line treatment options. We begin treatment with the least invasive treatment method and advance to surgical options only if these other methods have not proven helpful for your symptoms. To schedule a consultation, please contact our office at 501-224-5500.

Bladder Problems

Bladder problems can range from urgency, frequency, incontinence (leakage of urine), interstitial cystitis, or painful urination (dysuria). There are a variety of tests we can perform to diagnose your issues. We offer multiple treatment options for all of your bladder health needs.
