About the Women's Personal Health Care Program at Chesapeake Urology

What Sets Female Urology Experts Apart?
Our physicians include some of the region's leading experts in female urology and pelvic health. In fact, many of our doctors have received fellowship-training in female urological health. Female urology specialists are specially trained in areas such as pelvic reconstructive surgery, complex bladder and pelvic conditions, neurourology, and women's sexual health issues. This expertise is unique to physicians who specialize in female urological care and is complemented by a team of women's health specialists that provides an unmatched continuum of care.
Gynecology and Female Urology - What's the Difference?
While gynecologists focus more on women's reproductive health, a urologist or urogynecologist who specializes in female urological conditions focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of female conditions that affect the entire pelvic area and urinary tract system of a woman. Chesapeake Urology's urogynecologist also specializes in pelvic reconstructive surgery and minimally invasive surgical procedures.
