Drs. Dmochowski and Kaufman focus their practices on Urologic problems in women. Dr. Milam is nationally recognized as an authority in treating various forms of voiding dysfunction.
Our surgeons use a wide variety of cutting-edge techniques such as urodynamics, biofeedback, periurethral injection therapy, nerve stimulator implants, and innovative drug combinations for evaluation and management of incontinence and interstitial cystitis syndrome. In addition, there is specific emphasis on the surgical reconstruction of lower urinary tract abnormalities such as genitourinary fistulae, urethral diverticula and complex pelvic prolapse. A wide variety of procedures are performed for stress urinary incontinence including sling procedures and laparoscopic approaches — the treatment plan that is most appropriate for each individual patient is mutually formulated.
From noninvasive techniques like biofeedback to complex, state-of-the-art surgery, Vanderbilt provides these treatments with expert support and experience and tailors the appropriate treatment for each individual patient.
