Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

TriHealth's Fellowship Program in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery offers comprehensive training in all areas of urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery. The program emphasizes diagnostic evaluation and management of lower urinary tract dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, defecatory dysfunction, sexual function problems, pelvic pain, and complicated, benign pelvic surgery.

Experience in Medical and Surgical Treatments

Fellows gain experience by working with a large clinical volume of patients who are managed both medically and surgically. Medical management includes biofeedback, physical therapy, pharmacologic therapy, and the use of pessaries. Surgical management includes a wide variety of procedures performed abdominally, vaginally, and laparoscopically/robotically. We also employ a complete approach to diagnostic testing, including multichannel urodynamics, cystoscopy, endoanal ultrasound, and neurophysiologic testing.

Active Faculty

Our faculty is directly involved with the program, accredited since 1999 through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. One fellow is accepted per year, with three now in the program.

In addition, our division has a very active research focus, including a full-time research nurse and support through the Hatton Institute for Research and Education. Visit our research page to learn more about current studies.
