The National Center for Advanced Pelvic Surgery at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center provides comprehensive care for women with pelvic floor disorders—conditions that affect any of the pelvic organs. These include:
Abnormal Pelvic Bleeding
Abnormal pelvic bleeding can refer to either bleeding other than a menstrual period, or an unusually heavy period. Menorrhagia is the term used to describe uterine bleeding in between menstrual periods. Menometrorrhagia is both heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding at abnormal times.
Ovarian cysts are small, fluid-filled sacs that develop in the ovaries. They are most likely to develop during childbearing years. Cysts are typically benign and rarely indicate the presence of another disease. They can sometimes disappear on their own but they can also rupture, cause bleeding or be very painful. In more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.
Endometriosis is the condition where tissue similar to the tissue in the uterus is found elsewhere in the body, usually in the pelvic region. During menstruation, when endometrial cells are shed, they may attach themselves outside the uterus and grow abnormally. Endometriosis can cause significant pelvic pain. Laparoscopic surgery can be performed to remove the growths; in severe cases, a hysterectomy may be necessary.
