Psychologists are experts in helping people cope with the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that accompany chronic pelvic pain. They may work with individuals as part of our healthcare team. Our team understands that for many women, the experience of pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, painful sexual intercourse and other gynecological conditions can be frustrating and result in emotional distress. The decision to undergo gynecologic surgery may also be an emotional experience, because women may worry about undergoing surgery and about coping with the emotional consequences of certain surgeries, such as those that affect fertility.
Through our work with patients as well as available research, we understand that gynecologic conditions and treatments can take an emotional toll on individuals, couples and families. These conditions and treatments may also interfere with relationships, work, future family building and self-esteem. Our team is equipped to help you cope with the emotional toll that treatment may take on you, your spouse and other members of your family.
Our on-site multidisciplinary team includes experts in interventional radiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapy, pain psychology, sexual therapy, colorectal surgery and urology.
