Urogynecology: Why Choose Us


The National Center for Advanced Pelvic Surgery (NCAPS) at MedStar Health provides unrivaled expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders.

Pelvic floor disorders are conditions that affect a woman's pelvic organs, such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence, defecatory dysfunction, fistulae and other complications from childbirth. These conditions are common in women and cause a significant burden if left untreated.

Our mission is to provide comprehensive, compassionate medical and surgical care to women with pelvic floor disorders; to contribute to the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through clinical research; and to educate peers, physicians-in-training, other allied professionals and patients about pelvic floor disorders.

Our team of fellowship-trained urogynecologists, urologists, colon and rectal surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, physical therapists, pain management specialists, psychologists and nurse practitioners at NCAPS is the most experienced in the Washington/Baltimore region. We focus on the latest medical and minimally invasive vaginal, laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries to improve the patient experience, reduce pain and allow for a quicker recovery. Our center offers a caring environment sensitive to the needs of those with pelvic floor disorders. 

Urogynecology also provides Gender Affirming services and culturally competent LGBTQIA+ care. If you are interested in learning more about any of these services, please email [email protected] for more information and/or to schedule an appointment.
