Beaumont Hospitals, Royal Oak, MI, has opened a new Women’s Urology Center that the hospital says is the first center in the Midwest dedicated and designed exclusively for women’s urological care and sexual health.

The Women’s Urology Center offers "leading-edge treatments, innovative research, and the most advanced minimally invasive procedures for women’s urological conditions such as incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction," Beaumont said in a statement.

The 4,200-square-foot, $1.6 million center is staffed by board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians and a nurse practitioner who specialize in women’s urologic conditions.

The center offers a pelvic floor physical therapy program, comprehensive integrative medicine services including medical massage, guided imagery, and Reiki therapy, psychological support to help women understand and manage emotional stress resulting from urologic conditions, and access to clinical research trials evaluating new treatment options.

"We have created a special, private, and comfortable place for women to go where people who care will listen, evaluate their problem, and provide treatment that will make a difference in their lives," said Kenneth M. Peters, MD, chairman of urology at Beaumont Hospitals.
