Care Philosophy

It is not a normal part of a woman's aging process to develop uncomfortable, troublesome symptoms of incontinence, prolapse, or pelvic pain. Women need not "learn to live with it." Effective help is usually available through the services of a urogynecologist. Although your primary care physician or gynecologist may have knowledge about these problems, a urogynecologist can offer additional, more sophisticated expertise.Read more

    Dr. Dunn Jr. says...

    Fellowship-trained urogynecologists have completed medical school, a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a formal three-year fellowship in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery. During the fellowship, I learned to evaluate and treat common conditions that affect the female pelvic organs, and the muscles and connective tissue that support the organs. The fellowship training focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence, urinary and pelvic dysfunction, and pelvic support disorders.

    Dr. Dunn Jr. says...

    A urogynecologist can recommend a variety of therapies to cure or relieve symptoms of prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence, or other pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms. He or she should discuss both nonsurgical or surgical therapy although you will ultimately make decisions based on a number of factors including the severity of your condition and your general health. Nonsurgical options include medications, pelvic exercises (Kegels), behavioral and/or dietary modifications, and devices (e.g., vaginal weights, pessaries, urethral plugs). Biofeedback and electric Stimulation are treatments that are most effective when performed as part of a comprehensive pelvic floor program. Safe and effective surgical procedures are also utilized by the urogynecologist to treat incontinence and prolapse
