Pelvic Floor Disorders

​We know what you’re thinking. That those symptoms disrupting your life—like sexual discomfort and accidental bladder and bowel leakage—are something you just have to deal with. Well, you don’t. The physicians and specialists at The Christ Hospital Pelvic Floor Center can help. Stop coping with your symptoms and start talking about them. ​​

​​​​Urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, chronic constipation—they’re not issues most of us are comfortable talking about. But the reality is, nearly 30 percent of all women will develop these and other “pelvic floor” disorders—especially women who have vaginally delivered children or are post-menopausal. And while women are more likely to suffer from a pelvic floor disorder, men aren't immune. But many people suffering from these issues don’t seek help. They may be too uncomfortable talking about their symptoms, think they're just a normal part of aging or assume these kinds of problems can’t be corrected. But help is available, at one of the only centers of its kind--right here in Cincinnati.​​

Our unique multidisciplinary approach means that our physicians work side-by-side,​complementing each other in their areas of expertise: urogynecology, urology, and colon and rectal surgery. If you think you may have a pelvic floor disorder, call to speak to our nurse navigator at 513-463-2500. She'll ask you a few questions about your symptoms and connect you with the pelvic floor specialist that can best treat your symptoms. 

Fill out our confidential pelvic floor disorder symptom questionnaire. We know it’s easy to feel embarrassed about pelvic floor disorders and related symptoms. But they’re common—and very treatable! Tell us about how you’re feeling, and a Nurse Navigator will contact you to discuss your treatment options. Your submission will be sent over a secure system and kept completely confidential.​
