Female Pelvic Medicine

Halifax Health - Center for Female Pelvic Medicine

Halifax Health Center for Female Pelvic Medicine ensures that patients who need urogynecology expertise receive attention from a trained specialist who offers a broad range of therapeutic treatments, including minimally invasive surgery. Area patients now have access to an expert in complex hysterectomies and operations for large uterine fibroids, severe endometriosis, urinary or bowel incontinence, complications from previous surgeries, congenital anomalies, and chronic pelvic pain.

While laparoscopic approaches to pelvic floor disorders greatly improve patient satisfaction and reduce complications, adding a department focused on urogynecology streamlines a traditionally complex treatment process.

Because the pelvis encapsulates multiple organ systems, and dysfunction in one likely impacts others, many specialists may be involved in treatment, and they may not always communicate with each other. One of the most important benefits of Halifax Health Center for Female Pelvic Medicine is that it enhances the level of local urogynecological care by consolidating treatment for complicated disorders.

Cooperative Care

Introducing minimally invasive capabilities for complex conditions to the area means patients no longer have to travel long distances to tertiary care centers. It also gives referring physicians the ability to maintain close contact with their patients throughout the treatment process.

The Halifax Health Center for Female Pelvic Medicine offers a wide array of treatment options. While minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures are the centerpiece of their advanced surgical capabilities, not all patients require such intervention. Many pelvic issues can be addressed with physical therapy, pelvic floor rehabilitation, medication and biofeedback.
