Dr. Roger Goldberg is Director of the Division of Urogynecology at Northshore University Healthsystem, and Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He is widely published in the field of urogynecology, publishing over 60 peer-review scientific articles, numerous book chapters, and has authored two books including a textbook of urogynecology written for the Primary Care Provider (Springer, 2006), and also "Ever Since I Had My Baby" (Random House, 2003), the first book on post-childbirth pelvic floor disorders written for the layperson. His leadership positions in Urogynecology include a recent 3-year term on the Board of Directors for the American Urogynecology Society (AUGS). Dr. Goldberg holds numerous medical device patents and has innovated surgical procedures that are now performed worldwide; in this capacity he has been regularly invited to teach surgical techniques throughout dozens of countries internationally and across the United States. His urogynecology division located outside of Chicago oversees a 3-year fellowship training program in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), and their research has received top awards from nearly all major societies including AUGS, IUGA, and SGS.
Countless women suffer from pelvic prolapse, and loss of comfort or control involving the bladder, bowels and pelvic floor. While these conditions can be improved and often eliminated in the vast majority of cases, sadly most women with these disorders suffer in silence. Fortunately this is changing, as these problems are now emerging out of the shadows and into the spotlight. I am committed to providing the broadest possible range range of non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical solutions. I feel grateful to have the opportunity to regularly teach surgeons around the world, and here in daily practice at home, it is a true pleasure to work with each individual patient to determine the least invasive and most effective treatment option to solve her condition. My goal, at the end of this process, is to make my services obsolete as the patient moves on with a vastly improved quality of life!
