A provider putting hand on patient's shoulder

Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) like incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse occur when muscles are weak or injured, either through age, pressure, or childbirth. For many, these are embarrassing conditions that seem untreatable, but at Saint John’s Health Center, we believe no one should suffer with PFDs.

Whether you’re affected by irregular bladder, bowel or vaginal function, our expert urologists and urogynecologists provide the most effective treatments for these conditions.

Personalized care

We understand that pelvic floor disorders are uncomfortable and sensitive conditions. This is why our PFD specialists intentionally create a peaceful and sympathetic environment and provide holistic and compassionate care.

Together, we’ll create a treatment plan reflective of your needs and tailored to your specific condition.
