Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic Organ Prolapse or POP is a downward descent of the female pelvic organs, including the bladder, rectum, uterus if present, upper part of the vagina if the uterus is absent, or small bowel resulting in a bulge pressing into or out of the vagina.
Baylor Scott & White Center for Reconstructive Urology offers a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments, including:
- Lifestyle changes
- Pelvic floor therapy
- Surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse
Peyronie's disease, which causes a curved penis, is a common problem affecting 10% of all men. Most men do not require surgery.
However, in men with a severely curved penis that is affecting their ability to experience satisfactory intercourse, there is a very effective operation with an expected success rate of greater than 90%.

We perform a large volume of genitourinary prosthetic surgery at the Center for Reconstructive Urology. Many of these cases are referred in from other urologists and are complicated redo cases, in other words patients who already have a penile implant or artificial urinary sphincter and are experiencing problems with the device.

Urethral stricture disease
A urethral stricture is a scar that forms in the urethral channel that connects the bladder to the outside world.
There are many causes of male urethral strictures, but most urethral scars are related to some sort of trauma, either accidental or surgical. Female urethral strictures are often difficult to diagnose and are easily missed. Many of these strictures are caused by the same straddle events that occur in the male patients and they can occur at any level.
Baylor Scott & White Center for Reconstructive Urology uses both endoscopic and open surgical procedures for the treatment of urethral strictures.

This condition is much more common than most people think, occurring in greater than 40% of American women. The condition should not be considered a normal part of the aging processes and occurs in all age groups. In fact recent studies show that urinary incontinence is becoming quite prevalent among younger women.
