UrogynecologyReconstructive Pelvic Surgery

Managing pelvic floor disorders through safe and effective surgery.

If you are suffering from pelvic floor disorders like urinary or fecal incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, your physician may recommend a variety of treatment options, including surgery. Dr. Elizabeth Chase is the first physician in Dover, New Hampshire, to achieve board certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and is passionate about helping women feel normal again.

Reconstructive pelvic surgery can solve several issues:

Urinary incontinence

A common solution for urinary incontinence is to surgically place a sling under the urethra to help prevent urine from leaking out when sneezing or coughing.

Fecal incontinence

Your surgeon can repair damage to muscle or tissue to help improve bowel control, or can implant a medical device that you control to open or close your anus.

Pelvic organ prolapse

If you are experiencing pelvic organ prolapse, chances are that symptoms will increase as the prolapse progresses and conservative treatment methods may become ineffective.

procedures for correction of pelvic prolapse are performed each year in the United States

Words from Real Patients

Dr. Chase was incredible! I was worried I’d be uncomfortable discussing this problem, but her positive and encouraging manner put me completely at ease. Dr. Chase educated me on various treatment options and visually showed me how my organs were placed through a computer software program. I felt that I completely understood my choices and that Dr. Chase fully understood my concerns. The combination of her technical skill and kind understanding was exactly what I needed. She did a phenomenal job! I am now six weeks out of surgery and feel 100% better than I did before. As a teacher, I do a lot of running around and this will be so much easier now. We really don’t have to live with this!
