Pelvic Health and Urogynecology

Like many women, you may experience pelvic health issues at some time during your life. This does not mean you have to live in discomfort.

Our caring and supportive providers will help you feel at ease while talking about uncomfortable topics or symptoms. These might include bladder and bowel problems, pelvic pain, or prolapsed tissue, which can all be treated. Our compassionate specialists are experienced at finding personalized solutions that will allow you to get back to living your life to its fullest.

Treatment options to improve your life

Our team takes your quality of life and well-being seriously. You will benefit from innovative collaborations that offer you convenient, discreet, and effective treatments. For example, many people’s pelvic problems improve with behavioral changes. Our team includes an experienced physical therapist who is certified in pelvic health rehabilitation. She helps patients improve continence and some forms of prolapse.

For some, simple assistive devices are helpful. Or, if a surgical solution is right for you, a urogynecologist from Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center provides treatment right here in Keene.

Pelvic health symptoms can be sensitive, sometimes embarrassing subjects for people. So, we have a dedicated physical therapy room to ensure privacy in a supportive and comfortable environment.
