Rush Excellence in Abdominal and Pelvic Health Services
- Treatment options that work: At Rush, we offer a wide range of therapies and treatment options to care for your pelvic and abdominal health needs. We specialize in pelvic floor therapy, diet modifications, behavior changes, medications and vaginal laser treatment (MonaLisa Touch). That means we can often treat your symptoms without surgery. If surgery is needed, our team specializes in minimally invasive vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques. We also offer advanced methods such as sacral neuromodulation, an innovative treatment for urinary and fecal incontinence.
- Care that's convenient for you: Our pelvic and abdominal health providers offer care that's close to home. We see and treat patients in Chicago, Oak Brook and Aurora/Fox Valley.
- Team approach to care for the complex: If you're experiencing multiple pelvic and abdominal health conditions, you need holistic care. Rush University Medical Center offers the Program for Abdominal and Pelvic Health, bringing together a multidisciplinary team of experts, including gastroenterologists, urogynecologists and physical therapists, to treat complex pelvic health conditions. We'll build your team of providers based on your symptoms, and each visit will include the specialists you need to see so you won't have to make multiple appointments. After diagnosis, your team will develop a treatment plan based on how your conditions relate to each other, and which treatments will be the most effective in finding you relief.
- Affirming care treats all patients: In partnership with the Rush Center for Gender, Sexuality & Reproductive Health, we are committed to caring for all patients, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Recognizing the intimate nature of pelvic floor treatments, we offer compassionate and confidential care for conditions such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse that can affect LGBTQ+ individuals more often.
