Dr. Cathey's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cathey "Dr. Cathey is a Urogynecologist and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgeon at the Women's Pelvic Health and Continence Center. Urogynecology, a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynecology, is dedicated to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence and prolapse. Urinary incontinence, leakage of urine, is a very common condition affecting women. Prolapse simply means a bulging or pressure sensation in the vaginal area caused by displaced or falling female organs such as the bladder, uterus, vagina or rectum. Prolapse and incontinence frequently occur together. These are not a normal part of a woman's aging. Non-surgical and surgical treatment is available for patients with these uncomfortable symptoms. After completing her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Cathey underwent fellowship training where she spent several years focusing on the treatment of female gynecological disorders. She first completed a Fellowship in Advanced Gynecological Endoscopy focusing on minimally invasive surgical techniques such as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. This was followed by a Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery fellowship, where she concentrated on treatment of pelvic floor disorders. She currently participates in training other gynecologists in these areas."
