Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zipper "ZUA offers the full spectrum of Urogynecology services. If we don't offer it, you probably don't want it. We are among the nation's leaders in many services performing almost 1,000 incontinence and prolapse procedures each year. Dr. Zipper is known as a leader in non-drug based therapy for overactive bladder disease. In both 2010 and 2011, he was honored by Medtronic as the world leader in Interstim therapy. Dr. Zipper is the inventor of a Mini-Adjustable sling and he is responsible for many of the recent advances in both Incontinence and Prolapse surgery. Dr Zipper is also the inventor of Incisionless Vaginal Rejuvenation and holds a patent on Painless Laser Therapy.  In 2012 Dr Zipper and his brother won an academy award for the best feature documentary."
