Dr. Furlong's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Furlong "Dr. Denise Furlong is a top-rated urogynecologist in Chicago, IL, providing the highest-quality care for patients at Chicago Center for Women's Health. As a dual board-certified physician, Dr. Furlong offers her patients the broadest array of treatment options. These options include treatments for incontinence, pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, urinary tract infections (UTIs), menopause and pelvic organ prolapse, and she is skilled in minimally invasive surgery and diagnostic procedures, including cystoscopy and hysteroscopy to diagnose the cause of blood in the urine, pelvic pain and other issues. After earning her bachelor's degree at the University of Illinois, Urbana- Champaign, Dr. Furlong completed her medical degree, internship, and residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, followed by a fellowship at Illinois Urogynecology, Ltd. Today, she is one of only a handful of surgeons to have achieved board certification in both obstetrics-gynecology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Furlong is committed to offering patient-centered care for women from puberty through menopause, providing each patient with the information and guidance they need about their health at every stage of life so they can feel confident in their care. The office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders on site, helping to ensure patients receive the most appropriate care as quickly as possible. Dr. Furlong welcomes the opportunity to work with new patients, and the practice accepts most major medical insurance plans. Both English and Spanish are spoken at her practice. When she isn't caring for patients, Dr. Furlong enjoys spending time with her husband, three children, and two border collies at their home in Old Town "
