Treatments and Urogynecology Services
The University of Colorado Urogynecology specialize in treating pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) in order help restore our patients’ quality of life, as well as to prevent further problems.
Our staff and doctors are aware of the very personal nature of pelvic floor conditions for women. It’s often difficult for women to even ask for help with these issues.
So, while we are uniquely trained and focused on women’s pelvic health, we are also highly attuned to our patients’ sensitivities and needs. Along with the services our providers expertly perform below, women will find us to be caring listeners and dedicated partners in achieving their unique healthcare solutions.
Nearly 90 percent of urogynecologic conditions can be diagnosed and successfully treated through lifestyle changes, conservative procedures, medications, as well as complex surgical options.

- Behavioral modification, including Kegel exercises
- Dietary modification
- Bladder training
