Evaluation of Pelvic Floor Disorders

Because the symptoms of pelvic floor disorders are divers and complex, the underlying conditions must be accurately identified and evaluated to determine the appropriate treatment options. At the Sinai Hospital Institute for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, the most advanced diagnostic methods are used to examine the many factors that may contribute to the disorder.

A detailed medical history is taken and a urogynecologist performs a thorough physical exam, which is similar to a routine gynecological exam. In many cases, bladder testing with urodynamics is recommended and can be completed within 20 to 30 minutes in the office.

In partnership with the patient and her primary care physician, an appropriate treatment plan is developed. With successful management at treatment, patients are able to spend more time with friends and family, and return with confidence to their daily school, work and physical activities.
