Texas Health Fort Worth's Pelvic Health program can help restore
quality of life for women suffering from pelvic floor disorders.
The program is composed of a dedicated team of physicans on the
medical staff, nurses and physical therapists who have special
training and experience in the care of women with urinary
incontinence, prolapse and pelvic floor dysfunction.
What are pelvic floor disorders?
The pelvic floor refers to the muscles that form a sling across
the opening of the pelvis. The muscles and the surrounding
tissues keep all of the pelvic organs in place and help the
organs to function correctly.
Female pelvic floor disorders are conditions that affect a
woman's pelvic organs, including the vagina, uterus (or womb),
bladder, and rectum. Child bearing may increase the risk of
pelvic floor disorders.
By age 55, nearly half of all women will have some type of pelvic
floor disorder. Many women suffer in silence with uncomfortable
(and sometimes life-altering) symptoms.
