Northwest Urogynecology, also known as The Center for Urogynecology & Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery is a division of Northwest OB-GYN. Urogynecologists Dr. Linda Partoll and Dr. Sarah Hammil are board designated and fellowship trained in the unique sub specialty of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), as well as board designated in the specialty of OB-GYN. They are the only physicians with sub specialty fellowship training and FPMRS board designation within a 300 mile radius of Spokane. They specialize in the care of women with pelvic floor dysfunction. The pelvic floor is the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that help support and control the rectum, uterus, vagina and bladder. The pelvic floor can be damaged by childbirth, repeated heavy lifting, chronic disease or surgery.
Problems and symptoms associated with pelvic floor dysfunction:
- Incontinence: loss of bladder or bowel control, leakage of urine or feces
- Prolapse: descent of pelvic organs, a bulge and/or pressure; dropped uterus, bladder, vagina or rectum
- Emptying disorders: difficulty urinating or moving bowels
- Pelvic (or bladder) Pain: discomfort, burning or other uncomfortable pelvic symptoms, including bladder or urethral pain
- Overactive Bladder: frequent need to void, bladder pressure, urgency, or difficulty holding back a full bladder
As specialists who concentrate completely on urogynecology ,Drs, Linda Partoll and Sarah Hammil can recommend a variety of therapies to cure or relieve symptoms of prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence or other pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, please call and make an appointment to discuss possible treatment options.
