Bladder & Pelvic Health Services

University of Michigan Health-West’s Urogynecology experts specialize in treating pelvic floor disorders and other related issues. Pelvic floor disorders affect the muscles, ligaments and nerves that support the bladder, vagina, rectum and uterus. These disorders can affect women of all ages and can be an obstacle to enjoying everyday life.

Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction include leakage of urine or stool, difficulty urinating or moving your bowels, a dropped vagina, bladder, uterus or rectum, sexual pain and pelvic pain. While these symptoms are more common as women age, the pelvic floor can be damaged by childbirth, surgery, heavy lifting or chronic disease.
