Complex Gynecologic Issues

Complex Gynecological Issues

Have you been living with bladder leakage for a long time? What about pelvic pain or heavy periods? For many women, conditions like these limit their activities. Many women do not seek medical advice because they think these issues can't be solved. At MetroHealth, our providers treat these and many other sensitive problems every day. 

If a higher level of care is needed, you may be referred to a subspecialist in our Center for Advanced Gynecology. These doctors have additional training and years of experience helping women.

Our team works hard to consider all solutions before recommending surgery. Often there are great options out there that can help, such as:

  • Medications 
  • Pelvic floor exercises 
  • Biofeedback 
  • Bladder injections of Botox

Our surgeons can use minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery uses only tiny incisions. Vaginal surgeries require no abdominal cuts of any kind. Robotic surgery might also be an option.

The advantages of these approaches? Shorter hospital stays, a quicker return to normal activities, less post-surgery pain and an improved cosmetic appearance.

Other conditions that are often treated with minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Endometriosis 
  • Uterine fibroids 
  • Urinary incontinence 
  • Pelvic prolapse

Painful Period
Severe Pain With Your Period? Be Sure To Rule Out Endometriosis.

While you may no longer need a yearly Pap smear, you should speak to your gynecologist about any pain, heavy bleeding or other complex gynecologic issues you may be having. Do this during your yearly OB/GYN appointment or sooner if you are experiencing issues. By speaking up, you may help your doctor diagnose endometriosis sooner. Call 216-778-444 to make an appointment.
