Care Philosophy

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!Read more

Dr Goldberg and his team were very caring and compassionate to my concerns regarding stress incontinence. We discussed options that were available for my condition so that I could make an educated decision on how to proceed. I opted for surgery and was pleased with the attention I received before, during and after the procedure. I was referred to Dr. Goldberg by my primary care physician and I will highly recommend him to anyone with similar issues.

Dr. Goldberg gives you his full attention. He hears what you say and never gives up on trying to find treatment to help you. In addition, his staff is fully trained, helpful and very pleasant to work with.

My bladder lift surgery two years ago was a complete success and everything went smoothly. I would recommend Dr. Goldberg and his team to all women who are having problems as he is confident he will not have any problems and he made me confident and there were no problems!
I consider Dr. Goldberg a miracle worker! I have lived with OAB for about 15 years. I had seen a urologist but the meds didn't help much. Finally I was referred to Dr. Goldberg who is a Urogynecologist. I tried several treatments which helped some until he recommended having a Botox injection in my bladder. The results are just amazing. I was say that my symptoms are 90% better. I still wear pads just in case. Bravo Dr. G. I'll see you in 9-12 months when I need another injection. ??

Dr. Goldberg says...

Since completing my subspecialty fellowship training in Urogynecology in 2001, I have had the privilege of taking part in leading clinical care and research in this important women's health field.   I have developed minimally invasive surgical techniques for the treatment of pelvic prolapse, that are now taught worldwide and allow women more durable outcomes and have substantially reduced the need for traditional hysterectomy.  This role, as a surgical innovator, has led to numerous trips around the world to train colleagues and expert surgeons, and here at home we regularly host visiting physicians seeking to elevate their care.  As Director of the Division of Urogynecology at NorthShore / University of Chicago, I am extremely proud of our dedication to clinical care, and welcome you to our center if you're seeking relief from bladder, bowel, or other pelvic health conditions that impact nearly 50% of post-reproductive women.

Dr. Goldberg says...

I provide the full range of diagnostic and surgical procedures within our subspecialty of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.  This includes cystoscopy, urodynamics, office injections (botox, bulking), urethral slings, vaginal and laparoscopic prolapse surgery, hysterectomy, uterine sparing prolapse surgery, Interstim, tibial nerve stimulation.
