Urogynecology to debut single practice site in Cool SpringsAug. 25, 2016, 9:15 AM
Vanderbilt Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery is consolidating its practice sites and moving to the Vanderbilt Center for Women’s Health at Cool Springs. Providers will begin seeing patients at the new location beginning Thursday, Sept. 1.
The practice sees women for the treatment of pelvic floor disorders including pelvic organ prolapse, which is bulging or drooping of the uterus, vagina, bladder and/or rectum, as well as problems with bladder and/or bowel control.
Rony Adam, M.D., professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, said that one-third of all women in the United States are affected by pelvic floor disorders, which occur when pelvic muscles and connective tissue are weakened or injured.
“What we are offering is a comprehensive approach to treating our patients,” Adam said. “We are seeing a lot of growth in our specialty. An aging population and the desire to maintain quality of life creates a greater need for specialized treatment options for pelvic floor disorders. These complex conditions require a focused and individualized approach from providers who are dedicated to this area of health care and have the expertise needed to improve outcomes.
“These conditions significantly impact a woman’s quality of life. Our experienced team has extensive training and knowledge in surgical and nonsurgical interventions.”
Adam will be joined by two other physicians, Daniel Biller, M.D., associate professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Renee Ward, M.D., assistant professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology. Two nurse practitioners, Amy Hull, MSN, R.N., WHNP, and Lisa Milam, MSN, WHMP, will round out the team.
All three physicians are board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
