Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

About the Program

The fellowship training program in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) at the University of Cincinnati and The Christ Hospital is a comprehensive multidisciplinary training program jointly accredited by the American College of Graduate Medical Education.

The goal of our program is to train physicians interested in pursuing a career in academic medicine. Clinical and surgical experience includes how best to evaluate and manage patients with a variety of pelvic floor disorders including urinary and defactory dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction and complicated urologic and colorectal problems.

Our program has a strong emphasis on research and collaboration with a variety of other disciplines including urology, colorectal surgery, gynecology, neurology and plastic surgery. The Urogynecology service at both campuses is well established and receives a large number of complex referrals from a large geographic area.

A full complement of diagnostic modalities including video urodynamics, colorectal imaging, anal manometry and endoanal ultrasound are all available and housed in a center at The Christ Hospital dedicated to the evaluation of female pelvic floor disorders.

Fellows receive hands-on training on all diagnostic modalities and learn how to perform pelvic floor rehabilitation. Surgical volume is extensive and provides a breadth of experience with traditional vaginal surgery, laparoscopy and robotic procedures, as well as reconstructive procedures of the lower urinary and gastrointestinal tract.
