We perform a number of surgical procedures to treat a variety of urological and gynecological conditions. At Urogynecology of Kansas City, we provide safe and effective surgical procedures for Kansas City patients.
When the organs or structures surrounding the vaginal canal protrude into the vaginal canal, this is known as prolapse. This leads to medical issues such as bowel issues, urinary problems, and even sexual dysfunction problems. We perform a number of vaginal surgeries, including robotic surgeries, to correct a prolapse. Prolapse surgery is recommended for women with moderate to severe prolapse.
Patients with bladder-control issues may suffer from urinary incontinence. Women can suffer from either stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or overactive bladder (OAB), also known as urge incontinence.
We offer surgical management for urinary incontinence. Our surgical procedures for stress urinary incontinence are the mid-urethral sling and urethral bulking. For overactive bladder, we recommend several options, including InterStim therapy, Botox, and PTNS (Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation).
Many women can experience painful intercourse (dyspareunia). This may be due to physical causes, which can occur at the entry point or the deeper vaginal area. The pain can be experienced during penetration, thrusting, or hours after intercourse. We will recommend suitable treatment options depending on the findings of a physical examination during the consultation.
The inability to control bowel movements is called fecal incontinence. There are several causes of fecal incontinence, including childbirth injuries, anal sphincter damage, nerve damage, pelvic organ prolapse, and fistulas.
Depending on the cause of fecal incontinence, we may recommend any of the following treatment options:
- Nerve Stimulation
- Overlapping Anal Sphincteroplasty
- Injectable Anal Bulking Agents
- Magnetic Anal Sphincter
- Rectocele Repair
- Hemorrhoid Surgery
- Fistula Repair
- Rectal Prolapse Repair
- Fecal Diversion
A mesh can be placed in order to treat gynecologic problems. However, surrounding tissues can grow into and around the mesh. This causes complications, including pain, vaginal bleeding and discharge, and painful intercourse. A mesh removal surgery will be recommended for mesh complications.
A labiaplasty is also known as labia surgery or labia reduction surgery. This surgery procedure is recommended for women whose vaginal inner lips (labia minora) reach past the outer lips (labia majora). Women with this condition experience pain, itching, and irritation.
The consultation will start with a discussion of the health problems that you are experiencing. A physical exam will be performed, as well as an evaluation of your medical history. Ideal surgical procedures will be presented and discussed.
