If you suffer from pelvic floor disorders such as prolapse, incontinence, or sexual dysfunction, you aren’t alone. Many women often think these conditions are a normal part of aging and are unaware of the many treatment options available to them. Our team is committed to providing high-quality service and educational resources that empower women to take control of their health and improve their confidence and quality of life.
While some conditions related to the female reproductive and urinary tract systems can be treated by a primary care doctor or a gynecologist, some conditions are better treated by a physician who specializes in Urogynecology. Urogynecologists manage clinical problems associated with dysfunction of the pelvic floor and bladder and view the urinary and reproductive systems as being intertwined – not mutually exclusive.
CMU Health Urogynecology focuses on surgical and non-surgical treatment options for women experiencing symptoms of pelvic floor conditions. Our female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery specialists treat each patient with thoughtful, personalized care, working closely to help you determine the best option to manage your condition.

Our physicians develop treatment plans specific to each patient and give them the care and attention to attain the best possible results.
Our women’s health providers have privileges at both Ascension St. Mary’s and Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw. However, many procedures are done in our office and do not require a trip to the hospital.
In addition to seeing patients at two regional hospitals, we also offer minimally invasive outpatient treatment or in-office management at CMU Health clinics in Saginaw.
