MUSC Bladder & Pelvic Health Program
Pelvic floor disorders are a complex combination of medical problems that threaten the quality of life for people of all ages. These conditions include urinary and fecal incontinence, rectal and vaginal prolapse and complex combinations of these disorders, as well as interstitial cystitis, and other pelvic pain syndromes.
Conservative estimates are that at least 25-40 million Americans suffer from these conditions. Although both men and women are affected, women are represented in disproportionate numbers with as many as 1 in 3 affected by some level of bladder leakage. Since many of these disorders co-exist, comprehensive evaluation and therapy is absolutely essential. Fortunately, over the past few years, more accurate diagnosis has led to improvement in non-surgical and surgical outcomes, and better patient satisfaction.
The multidisciplinary MUSC Bladder and Pelvic Health Program is a regional and national program for the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of all non-cancerous disorders of the pelvis. Through the combined experience and cooperation of three well-established disciplines at the Medical University of South Carolina: urology, gynecology and colorectal surgery, we offer an efficient, cost-effective and comprehensive evaluation and treatment program.
