Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Program

Maine Medical Partners Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is the most comprehensive center in Maine for evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women.

What is a pelvic floor? 

Your pelvic floor includes the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue in the lower pelvis that provide support to your body and help your organs function properly. Weakness, damage, or nerve dysfunction in the pelvic floor can affect your bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum.

Two specialty practices in one office location:

Our team of board-certified specialists includes urogynecologists, a vulvovaginal specialist and highly specialized nurse practitioners.
