Replacing Stigma with Hope. Uncertainty with a Path Forward.
Led by Dr. Benjamin Steinberg and Dr. Jason Meade, the entire team at UGSC is singularly focused on working hand-in-hand with each patient to provide a comfortable and safe environment. Focused on evaluation, education and consultation, the members of UGSC provide a level of care, second to none. UGSC is the leading practice in Californias Central Valley, focused solely on treating women with common pelvic floor problems, including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, overactive bladder, painful intercourse, recurrent urinary tract infections, and chronic cystitis as well as the groundbreaking Viveve vaginal rejuvination procedure.
What is a Urogynecologist?
Doctors called urogynecologists, or urogyns, receive special training to diagnose and treat women with pelvic floor disorders. Although your primary care physician, OB/GYN, or urologist may have knowledge about these problems, a urogyn offers additional expertise. Urogynecologists complete medical school and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology or Urology. These doctors are specialists with additional training and experience in the evaluation and treatment of conditions that affect the female pelvic organs, and the muscles and connective tissue that support the organs. Many, though not all, complete formal fellowships (additional training after residency) that focus on the surgical and non-surgical treatment of non-cancerous gynecologic problems.
What is Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery?
The American Board of Medical Specialties approved Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, also known as urogynecology, as a certified subspecialty in 2011, and the first doctors were board-certified in 2013. Urogynecologists are physicians who complete medical school and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology or Urology. To be board certified, these physicians must be specialists with additional years of fellowship training and certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. The training provides expertise in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the muscles and connective tissue of the female pelvic organs. Pelvic floor conditions that urogynecologists commonly treat include urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, and pelvic organ prolapse. These physicians are also knowledgeable on the latest research in the field pertaining to these conditions. Dr. Steinberg and Dr. Meade are the Central Valley's only fellowship trained and board certified physicians in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Drs. Steinberg and Meade are also both closely involved in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist and the American Urogynecologic Society to ensure UGSC provides its patients the most current and beneficial care.
