About one-quarter of all women experience a pelvic floor disorder, whether it’s stress urinary incontinence or a bladder issue. Yet many women are too embarrassed to seek help. If laughing, coughing and sneezing is causing “accidents,” it’s time to find a urogynecologist who will listen to your concerns and work with you to restore your comfort and freedom.

Grand View Health provides expert urogynecology care, along with physical therapy programs designed specifically to improve pelvic floor strength and function. Board-certified urogynecologist Luis Espaillat, MD, uses minimally invasive techniques, including da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery, and the latest treatment options available in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.

New Treatment for Female Incontinence

Dr. Espaillat provides treatment for overactive bladder using the InterStim™ Micro System from Medtronic. This tiny device, recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, works like a pacemaker for the bladder, allowing women to regain bladder control.

With offices in Quakertown and Lansdale, we help women throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties, including women in Dublin, Telford, Souderton, Hatfield, Colmar, Montgomeryville, Quakertown, Perkasie, Chalfont and North Wales.
