At New Jersey Urology (NJU), we know that female care is a unique and delicate process. Our urology specialists—four of whom are women—have years of experience in tending to the sensitive needs of the female anatomy.
Whether you’re living with pelvic prolapse, urinary incontinence or a painful bladder, we are committed to offering superior comprehensive care for female patients of all ages and activity levels with complex urologic conditions.
Bladder and Urinary Care
Like many conditions that affect the urologic system, female bladder issues can be a sensitive subject. As a result, women wait an average of 6.5 years from the first time they experience symptoms until they obtain a diagnosis for bladder control problem(s) such as:
- Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
- Overactive bladder (OAB)
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Voiding dysfunction
Stone Disease Care
Stones in the urologic system are fairly common and occur when mineral deposits or mineral and acid salts crystalize and form deposits that may result in a blockage. In fact, according to the American Urologic Association, urinary stone prevalence is estimated at three percent in all individuals, and it affects up to 12 percent of the population during their lifetime. The stones can be found in the in the bladder, kidneys or urinary tract.
Pelvic Floor Conditions
At NJU, we have specialty-trained urogynecologists and urologists on staff that specialize in treating conditions including:
- Chronic pelvic pain (CPP)
- Painful intercourse
- Pelvic floor dysfunction
- Pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
- Urinary tract fistula
- Vaginal fistula
- Female sexual dysfunction
Care for Female Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction refers to an issue during any phase of the sexual response cycle that keeps patients from enjoying a sexual experience. This cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution.
Problems during any of the phases can result in:
- Failure to become aroused
- Inhibited sexual desire
- Lack of orgasm (anorgasmia)
- Painful intercourse
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cancer takes the lives of over a quarter of a million women in the U.S. each year.

The urologist will create a customized treatment plan for each individual’s needs, which may include referral to a specialized cancer treatment center. Urologic cancers include:
