HOUSTON, June 17, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fiona M. Lindo, MD, MPH, FACOG, has joined Houston Methodist Urogynecology Associates at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, where she serves as the Medical Director of Urogynecology. Dr. Lindo is fellowship trained in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery and a diplomate of the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology. She specializes in treating patients with female urological issues and pelvic floor disorders and performing urogynecologic surgeries. She is also trained in performing minimally invasive procedures.
Her clinical expertise includes:
- Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery

- Atrophic vaginitis

One in three women suffer from pelvic floor disorders, yet only one in 10 women discuss these issues with their primary care physician – and therefore, suffer in silence.
"As a specialist, I focus my clinical practice on comprehensive care of women with pelvic floor disorders, which include: prolapse-hernias of the vagina and womb, urinary incontinence, accidental bowel leakage and all other related problems," Dr. Lindo explained.
Dr. Lindo understands the pelvis is not a box separate to itself, it houses several organ systems such as the urinary system, gynecological system, reproductive organs, muscular skeletal system, gastrointestinal system, the nervous system. Each of the systems interact and are impacted when one is not working properly.
"It is important to evaluate each system and address the issue holistically," she continued. "My approach to care is to provide an environment where women can share their concerns and together we create a workable treatment plan that involves cutting edge conservative treatment options, and when necessary, surgical treatments."

Dr. Lindo practices with Houston Methodist Urogynecology Associates, which is located at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital.
