Hope for women suffering from pelvic floor disorders

Congratulations to OHSU Department of Urology’s Dr. Kamran Sajadi, one of the first physicians in Oregon to be board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS).

Pelvic floor disorders affect 1 in 3 women, but only about 1 in 10 will seek treatment. Although they can affect women of all ages, pelvic disorders and their resulting complications – incontinence, overactive bladder, prolapse – do become more common with aging. They are also quite common in women who have given birth or struggled with weight issues. There are a variety of treatment options available for these problems, both surgical and non-surgical.

To learn more about Urogynecology, Dr. Sajadi’s certification from the American Board of Urology, or if you think you may be experiencing a pelvic floor disorder, contact the OHSU Department of Urology for a consultation.
