Available 24 hours a day, the Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists provide comprehensive services for pregnant women including women with high-risk medical or obstetrical conditions.
Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology)
Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), also known as urogynecology, is a field which addresses the diagnosis and treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal fistulas and congenital or acquired vaginal anomalies. Urogynecologists undergo three years of additional training after completing four years of general obstetrics and gynecology training. Incontinence and pelvic floor problems are extremely common but many women do not seek care because they may be embarrassed and often they are not aware of the numerous treatment options. Evaluation in the office will include a pelvic exam and may require specialized bladder testing. Treatment includes both surgical and non-surgical options.
Gynecology Oncology (Cancer)
Our Gynecologic Oncology service is staffed by nationally-recognized physicians and staff who specialize in treating cancers of the vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries, vulva and fallopian tubes. Patients can be referred to Gynecologic Oncology for diagnosis, treatment or screening. Our Gynecologic Oncologists specialize in the surgical treatment of all gynecologic cancers. We offer our patients the latest advances in minimally invasive surgery using the Da Vinci Robot. Our patients have shorter hospital stays, less postoperative pain, and very small cosmetically pleasing incisions. We offer cutting edge chemotherapy including access to clinical trials through our affiliation with the Cancer Therapy and Research Center of South Texas. All of our patients receive state of the art medical care in a warm and caring setting with respect and compassion for the "whole person".
