The Women’s Pelvic Medicine and Continence Program at UCLA is committed to helping women in need of comprehensive treatment for pelvic floor disorders.
Conditions such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, rectocele and uterine prolaspe) as well as bowel control problems all can be successfully evaluated and treated by our team of expert providers.
We emphasize using the most up-to-date evidence to provide a balance between proven traditional therapies and cutting-edge technologies to give our patients the very best in care. Our philosophy is to offer a diverse variety of treatment strategies employing educational, behavioral, dietary, physical therapy and surgery to tailor to our patients’ individualized needs. As a part of UCLA Healthcare system, one of the nation’s leading institutions in healthcare, the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery assists in leading the way with novel clinical research offering the latest minimally invasive techniques to provide improved care to our patients.
The program is under the guidance of Director Dr. Christopher Tarnay, a Urogynecologist and an Associate Professor in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Urogynecologists are physicians who have completed three years of specialized training in Women's Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. UCLA offers a coordinated interdisciplinary care that includes primary care physicians, gynecologists, gastrointestinal specialists and colorectal surgeons, all specially trained in diagnosis and in medical and surgical treatments for managing pelvic floor disorders. So you don’t have to arrange for specialists outside on your own.
