Urogynecological Conditions

At Summa, we provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team-based approach with four fellowship-trained urogynecological specialists who have more than 70 years of combined experience — including the only female urogynecologist in the five-county area (Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne counties). Our specialists are supported by more than 30 healthcare professionals from the Summa Women's Health Institute, which offers a wide range of services to women of all ages, from those of childbearing age to post-menopausal women.

Summa's urogynecological care services are available at three convenient locations in Akron, Barberton and Green.

We provide surgical and non-surgical treatment options for common urogynecological conditions, including:

  • Incontinence (fecal and urinary)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic or bladder pain
  • Overactive bladder
  • Bladder emptying disorders

Summa is a leader in offering innovative surgical treatments for urogynecological conditions, including minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgical techniques. If your physician determines you are a good candidate for minimally invasive robotic surgery, you may experience such benefits as: less pain following surgery, less blood loss during surgery and less recovery time.

Specific procedures performed by Summa's urogynecologic surgeons include:

  • Biopsies
  • Cystocele repair
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C)
  • Ablation
  • Enterocele repair
  • Hymenotomy
  • Hysterotomy
  • Polypectomy
  • Rectocele repair
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Uterine fibroid surgery
  • Surgical treatment for incontinence
  • Surgical treatment for pelvic organ prolapse
