Capital Regional is expanding its network-of-care by opening the Florida Institute for Pelvic Health and Incontinence at Capital Regional Medical Center.

Urogynecologic services are needed in Tallahassee and the surrounding communities. In fact, pelvic floor disorders (weakened pelvic muscles or tears in theconnective tissue) impact one out of every three women.

“These issues are intense, they’re personal, and they change lives,” said Michael Douso, MD, north Florida’s only board-certified urogynecologist and pelvic surgeon. “Urinary or fecal incontinence, advanced gynecologic issues, prolapse and other pelvic health issues require very specialized attention.”

To empower women and provide them with the educational tools they need regarding pelvic health, the Institute is offering the HerPelvic Health Program. The goal is to inspire females to become involved in their pelvic health, and to provide the education, screenings and resources to do so effectively.

Services offered by Dr. Douso and his team include:

  • A range of therapeutic options for pelvic floor disorders, from conservative to surgical
  • Onsite diagnostic testing
  • Innovative and effective procedures, featuring robotic surgery and a focus on minimally invasive techniques
  • HerPelvic Health Seminars

“This institute is not just about treatment, it’s about education and compassionate care,” said Mark Robinson, President & CEO of Capital Regional Medical Center.
