      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Wassinger says...

      As the only Urogynecologist in Southern Colorado who is Board Certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, I provide extensive evaluation and treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders.  

      Specializing in surgical and non-surgical therapies for Pelvic Floor Disorders such as:

      Urinary and fecal incontinence, Prolapse, Painful Bladder Syndrome, Urinary Urgency, Mesh removal and insertion, Sling insertion and removal.  

      In the last three years I have performed over 160 complicated robotic surgeries including sacral colpopexies and hysterectomies.  My office offers urodynamics and office based treatments for urgency such as bladder Botox.  

      I also perform sacral neuromodulation for the treatment of refractory Overactive Bladder.

      I get great satisfaction from treating patients with Pelvic Floor Disorders and returning them to the activities they love with minimally invasive surgical and medical techniques.
