Urogynecology

Patient Care

At the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, our board-certified urogynecologists provide personal, professional and compassionate care in the prevention, detection and treatment of a broad range of women's health concerns.

We offer advanced gynecological surgical treatments including vaginal, laparoscopic and abdominal hysteroscopies, a procedure that makes examining the inside of the uterus possible without making an abdominal incision. The School of Medicine's Vani Dandolu, M.D., and Christian Quintero, M.D., are among the first in the nation to receive board certification in the advanced specialty of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive surgery.

Our doctors are committed to improving the delivery of health care that women and adolescents receive today and years to come. Schedule an appointment for your complete obstetrical care, preventative annual exams, or extensive gynecological services today.

Urodynamics

Urodynamics is a study that assesses how your bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests help your doctor see how well your bladder and sphincter muscles work and can help explain symptoms such as incontinence, frequent urination, sudden and strong urges to urinate and painful urination.

Biofeedback

The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock, stretching from the pubic bone to the lower back. These muscles support the pelvic organs, including the bladder. If pelvic floor muscles become weak or damaged due to childbirth, surgery, excess straining, or genetics, incontinence can occur. Fortunately, urinary incontinence can be improved in some patients by exercising and strengthening these muscles. Although some patients may in the past have tried pelvic floor muscle exercises or Kegel exercises, they may have found them ineffective for several reasons.

Using biofeedback, a patient with urinary incontinence learns to recognize signals from the pelvic floor muscles that control urination. You can then use these signals to exercise and strengthen the correct pelvic floor muscles and improve function.

Gynecologic surgery

Gynecologic surgery treatments can include procedures like cyrosurgery, when a section of the cervix is frozen to destroy abnormal cervical cells that may show changes that lead to cancer, LEEP, or loop electrosurgical excision procedure, used when there is an indication of abnormal cells on the surface of the cervix.
