Many different problems can have the symptom of pelvic, lower abdominal or lower back pain. Pain in these locations can come from any of the organs in the lower abdominal or pelvic spaces including the reproductive organs, bladder or bowels.
Pain in this region can also come from the back or from joints and muscles in the pelvic sidewalls or pelvic floor.
Ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adenomyosis and fibroids can (but do not always) produce pelvic pain. The bladder or the bowels may produce pelvic pain, and many women experience pelvic pain with menstruation, often very severe. Internal scar formation ( from things like prior surgery, infection, endometriosis) or pelvic floor hernias can also cause pain.
Other, primarily structural problems with the lower back, muscles of the lower abdominal wall or pelvic floor can generate pain. Many of these problems causing pain can be treated non-surgically and (most of the time) the symptom of pain is not caused by cancer.
If surgical treatment is needed I use minimally invasive surgical techniques primarily the Davinci Robotic System. These operations can almost always be done as outpatient surgery with small incisions and very short recovery times. It is my goal to have you up and back to normal as quickly as possible.
