Certain health concerns in a woman’s life can be difficult to discuss with others, even her physician. These concerns can include female urinary incontinence, female pelvic organ prolapse, female sexual health issues, and more. In addition to causing discomfort, inconvenience and sometimes pain, these health problems often cause embarrassment and can negatively impact quality of life. While some women may think that these problems are a natural part of the aging process, they are not. It is important to know these issues are, in most cases, very treatable.
Premier Women’s Center, located in Poughkeepsie, NY, specializes in diagnosing and treating a wide range of female pelvic disorders and female sexual health issues. Our multidisciplinary team of experienced specialists, led by Dr. Daniel Katz, includes two nurse practitioners, nurses (RN’s and LPN’s) and urology technicians. These dedicated professionals understand the personal nature of these conditions and provide confidential, compassionate, and individualized care.
Female Pelvic Disorders
Nearly half of American women will suffer from urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse at some point in their lives, and many will also suffer from bothersome symptoms of overactive bladder. There are many non-surgical treatments and surgical options available today to treat female pelvic floor disorders including bladder retraining, dietary changes, medication, Botox therapy, minimally invasive surgery: robotic assisted and trans-vaginal procedures and more.
Female Sexual Health and Dysfunction
As many as 44 percent of women will experience some form of sexual dysfunction, including decreased desire, arousal, ability to achieve orgasm, satisfaction, or painful intercourse, during their lifetime. Treatments to modify reversible causes and successfully restore sexual health include vaginal laser rejuvenation, hormone manipulation, sex therapy, lifestyle modifications like exercise and diet, alteration of prescription medications, and other behavior modifications.
