Genitourinary Trauma

Penn’s Level 1 trauma center provides comprehensive care for trauma injuries to any genitourinary organ, including complex injuries of the kidneys, bladder, and urethra.   We provide both acute care in the trauma setting as well as a wide range of reconstructive options for patients who have suffered complex injuries to the genitourinary tract.

Female Reconstructive Urology

Pelvic floor disorders including urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse ("dropped bladder") are common in women.  The Penn Center for Continence and Pelvic Health provides comprehensive evaluation for these conditions, ranging from behavior modification with strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles to complex reconstructive surgery.  State of the art surgical repair options involving minimally invasive vaginal approaches, robotic technology, and the use of the patient’s own autologous tissue are available.

Male Reconstructive Urology

Many men unfortunately suffer from urethral stricture disease, kidney obstruction, bladder neck contracture, erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.  At Penn, we provide multiple options to address these complex issues and restore function such as urethral and ureteral reconstructive surgeries, urinary tract augmentation and diversion, correction of penile curvature, anti-incontinence surgeries, and penile prosthesis implantation.  We also provide comprehensive urologic care for men who have undergone treatment for prostate cancer, including advanced treatments for erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.
