OWINGS MILLS, Md., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chesapeake Urology Associates recently launched its new Women's Personal Health program, focusing on the unique urologic and pelvic health needs of women throughout the Greater Baltimore region. In fact, Chesapeake Urology is the only urology practice in the Mid-Atlantic region with a dedicated urology program just for women, taking a personal approach to intimate female pelvic health issues.
"We've long known that women's health needs are vastly different than men's, and we designed a program that provides women with access to leading specialists in female urology and pelvic health," says Sanford Siegel, M.D., CEO of Chesapeake Urology Associates. "No other urology practice in the region has such a comprehensive women's program that addresses the intimate health issues that many women face but are often too embarrassed to seek help for. Our providers are not only specially trained in female urology and pelvic health, but also understand that superior care must also be personal and individualized."
Chesapeake Urology's women's personal health program includes fellowship-trained physicians, a urogynecologist and physicians focused on female urology with special training in areas such as pelvic reconstructive surgery, complex bladder and pelvic conditions, neurourology, and women's sexual health issues. The program is complemented by a team of women's health specialists including pelvic floor physical therapists, urodynamicists for advanced diagnostics, a patient navigator dedicated to urinary incontinence patients, pessary specialists for treating pelvic organ prolapse as well as a urogynecology nurse practitioner. The program also offers clinical trials for women's conditions such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapsed.
The new women's personal health program address conditions ranging from urinary incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, pelvic organ prolapse and recurrent urinary tract infections to kidney stone disease and bladder problems. Through non-surgical treatment options to advanced surgical interventions, women now have a team of specialists, many who are females, dedicated to treating their symptoms and restoring their quality of life.
Chesapeake Urology launched its new women's health program in response to a growing need for more personalized urologic services for a wide array of conditions affecting women. The program's providers found that many women live with troublesome symptoms of pelvic and urologic conditions for years before ever seeking treatment due in part to embarrassment over discussing intimate issues with their doctor and even confusion over where to turn to for help with life-altering symptoms. Chesapeake Urology's new women's program helps take the stigma out of intimate urologic health conditions for women, combining compassionate care with leading providers who understand what female patients need, and want, in urologic care.
