An innovative approach to pelvic health for women and girls of all ages

Athena Women’s Health offers innovative female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS), urology, and physical therapy (PT) services for women and girls.  Our philosophy is to provide comprehensive programs that start with the diagnosis and utilize holistic, rehabilitative and curative care plans.  The programmatic approach we use is attentive to our patients’ emotional and educational needs because we believe knowledge is empowering.  Where surgery is required, your care plan may include pre- and post- operative PT to rehabilitate your pelvic function.  From the ease of making your first appointment, to the comfort of our office, to the compassionate expertise of our all-women staff and FPMRS board-certified doctors, you will find Athena is dedicated to restoring your pelvic health and wellness.

What is Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS)?

Broadly known as urogynecology, FPMRS is the treatment of complex pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

In 2011, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) officially recognized FPMRS as a board-certifiable subspecialty. In doing so, they acknowledged that care for women with complex pelvic floor disorders required subspecialty training and certification beyond that of a general obstetrician/gynecologist or urologist.

Athena’s doctors are board certified/board eligible, ensuring you receive the most advanced care for your pelvic floor disorders. Request an appointment or call us today at 425-392-8611.
