A urogynecologist is competent at treating pelvic floor disorders. These disorders involve the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue located in the lower pelvis that are responsible for supporting the pelvic organs. The pelvic organs include the bladder, bowel, rectum, uterus, and vagina.
Pelvic floor disorders arise when there is a tear in the connective tissue or a muscle weakness in the pelvic region. This may happen after childbirth, chronic disease, menopause, pelvic surgery, or repeated strenuous activity. Lifting heavy objects, genetics, and tobacco use may also contribute to the development of pelvic floor disorders. These disorders include bowel control problems, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, stress incontinence, and vaginal deformity.
If you are suffering from a condition affecting the pelvic floor, Dr. DelCharco is the physician you should see. With nearly 20 years of experience, he has diagnosed and treated a wide range of urogynecology issues. Being board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. DelCharco is professional, compassionate, and highly skilled in this area.
