Protecting Your Pelvic Floor

October 24, 2018

Pelvic floor disorders are incredibly common. Nearly one in three women will talk to their healthcare provider about some kind of pelvic floor dysfunction, including incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. We're kicking off Bladder Health Month a little early with a conversation with Dr. Christine Heisler about why people might seek help from a doctor like her.

Dr. Heisler is a female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgeon. She discussed the causes of pelvic floor disorders and the wide variety of treatments available to patients experiencing incontinence or prolapse.

If you'd like to learn more about pelvic floor disorders, join Dr. Heisler and other UW Ob-Gyn providers for two Bladder Health Month community events! Learn more about how to Break Free from Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Disorders at uwhealth.org/breakfree.
