Whenever you have a medical condition or a concerning issue, you want to see the very best medical professional you can find. You want someone who is highly trained with above average expertise. Some might call this person a specialist or someone highly skilled in a specific field. This describes a urogynecologist.
What Is a Urogynecologist?
A urogynecologist provides the best of two worlds with an in-depth knowledge of certain female issues. This specialist has studied both urology and gynecology with extra training and expertise in urinary incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic floor disorders.
A urogynecologist completes medical school and then a residency in obstetrics/gynecology or urology. In addition, they complete a 2 or 3 year fellowship in conditions concerning the pelvic floor.
In 2011 urogynecology became a sub-specialty, with the first physicians becoming board certified in 2013.
If coughing, laughing, or sneezing causes you to leak urine, see a urogynecologist like Dr. Wyman. Especially trained to care for stress incontinence and an overactive bladder, this symptom of a pelvic floor problem can be handled by a urogynecologist.
Maybe you’re already gone to your GYN or even a urologist with no lasting improvement. A urogynecologist is specially trained to help even when other treatments have failed.
See a Urogynecologist for Menopause Symptoms
The time from perimenopause through to menopause, a woman’s symptoms can become debilitating. From hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, reduced libido, and vaginal dryness, this time is a nightmare for many women. A urogynecologist can help you find relief.
See a Urogynecologist for Frequent UTIs
If you have 2 or more urinary tract infections in 6 months or 3 or more within a year, it’s time to see a urogynecologist. Sometimes these UTIs can be symptomatic of other complex problems. Dr. Allison Wyman will perform non-invasive tests to determine the cause(s) before recommending treatments.
See a Urogynecologist for Pelvic Organ Prolapse

A urogynecologist like Dr. Allison Wyman is specially trained in the most advanced procedures to treat POP.
