Quite often women present with problems that overlap between the fields of gynecology and urology and they are forced to bounce back and forth between a urologist and a gynecologist. Urogynecology bridges that gap and allows for both of these issues to be addressed by one physician.
The field of Urogynecology is a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynecology and is dedicated to the study and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women.
Dr. Goldwassers Urogynecology clinic is a subspecialty division of North Florida OBGYN. This center provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment modalities for the management of problems women may have with their bladder and female organs with specific focus on the following problems:
