Urogynecology

"It's important for providers to ask patients about
urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse," Navas
said. "Providers can screen for some of the conditions
they may refer to us."
Navas and Westermann point out that education is
important when it comes to treatment for conditions
that patients may be embarrassed to discuss.
"We've done a lot of community outreach to let people know it's OK to talk about these conditions," Dr.
Westermann said. "There are options out there. There
are people who can help. Patients don't have to just live
with it. It all comes down to improving quality of life."
Common urogynecology procedures include same-day
surgery for urinary incontinence, neuromodulation for
bladder and bowel control, Botox to relax the bladder,
management of mesh complications, prolapse repair, and
fistula repair. The only practice of its kind in Lancaster
County, LGHP Urogynecology & Pelvic Reconstructive
Surgery specializes in minimally invasive surgery, including robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System,
laparoscopic, and vaginal surgery.

UROGYNECOLOGY IS
REALLY AN OVERLAP
OF GYNECOLOGY
AND UROLOGY
"As our population is aging but people are remaining
in good health as they age, urogynecology care can help
them stay active without having to worry about bladder
leakage or related problems," Dr. Westermann said.
Physicians can refer patients to LG Health Physicians
Urogynecology & Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery by
placing a Urogyn referral in Epic or sending a fax to
717-544-0709.
