Female Urology Q & A

What female urology services are offered?

Even though many women assume urologists specialize in men’s care, you can also see a urologist for female-specific concerns. Dr. Novogrodsky treats women with urological problems, such as:

  • Overactive bladder
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Incontinence after pregnancy or menopause
  • Painful intercourse
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • pelvic prolapse
  • pelvic floor disorders

Some services that gynecologists and urologists provide overlap, but a urologist specifically specializes in urinary tract issues and kidney troubles.

When should I see a urologist who specializes in female urology?

A urologist is the best person to see any time you have an issue with your urinary tract or pelvic organs. Dr. Novogrodsky has expertise treating women with intimate issues, so you can trust him to handle your concerns with compassionate care.

Reach out to Dr. Novogrodsky if you:

  • Have a female-specific urological concern
  • Experience urological issues that interfere with your everyday life
  • Have a condition that exceeds the scope of primary care
  • Experience a complicated urological concern or coexisting conditions
  • Have reoccurring problems with your urinary tract or pelvis

Dr. Novogrodsky is equipped to handle even your most private issues, so don’t hesitate to bring them up.

How are women’s urology concerns treated?

During your first appointment at Urocare Services, Dr. Novogrodsky will take your full medical history and ask about your symptoms. He’ll then perform a physical exam and order any follow-up lab work.

After diagnosing your medical issue, Dr. Novogrodsky will take a conservative treatment approach first to see how you respond. He’ll then graduate to more progressive therapies if your condition doesn’t improve.

Conservative treatments often include behavior modification, such as fluid intake, pelvic floor strengthening, and physical therapy. He will also consider medication.

If your condition doesn’t improve, Dr. Novogrodsky may use techniques like Botox® injections to improve bladder control, neuromodulation to stimulate the nerve connecting the bladder and the brain, and urodynamics to study bladder function. Some severe or treatment-resistant conditions may require surgery to correct the problem.
