Dr. J Kyle Mathews Specializes in Complete Care for Women
Bladder incontinence, pelvic pain or recurrent urinary tract infections may initiate a visit to Dr. J Kyle Mathews, a Dallas-area specialist in female pelvic medicine.
As a urogynecologist, Dr. Mathews diagnoses and treats painful and distressing disorders that interfere with a woman’s quality of life. When you seek treatment for incontinence or vaginal prolapse, insist on partnering with a physician uniquely qualified in urogynecology.
Combining Two Specialties: Urology and Obgyn
Women traditionally partner with an obgyn for routine visits and Pap smears, transitioning to obstetrical care and eventually menopause support. A relatively new field of medicine has emerged that focuses on female pelvic medicine and surgery. Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery or more commonly referred to as Urogynecology is a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Board certified as an obgyn and advanced training in urogynecology uniquely positions Dr. Mathews to provide women comprehensive care over a lifetime.
Age and childbirth can lead to problems that require expert care to resolve. It’s common for a urogynocologist to treat bladder incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, like vaginal prolapse in women that are otherwise healthy. A weakened pelvic floor may cause a domino effect, with prolapse of the uterus giving way to urinary incontinence. Seeking the expert care of a urogynocologist can make a profound impact on your quality of life.
Urogynecology Services offered by Dr. Mathews include:
Maintaining Urinary Tract Health
A specialist in urogynecology treats recurrent urinary tract infections or UTIs, paying close attention to urinary tract infections that impact the kidney. If you have had 3 or more bouts with UTI in a year, or an infection that lasts longer than 2 weeks, schedule an appointment with our Plano urogyn clinic.
Providing Proactive Care for Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when walls weaken, and support for internal organs collapses. A woman that experiences prolapse may feel or see bulging, or bladder incontinence. We routinely treat:
- Vaginal prolapse
- Prolapse of the uterus
- Bladder prolapse
Our urogyn practice routinely sees women suffering from incontinence. In fact, as many as 20 percent of young women, and over 50 percent of women over 65, deal with the embarrassment and inconvenience of leaking urine, or urinary incontinence. That percentage is unacceptable to Dr. Mathews, and he commits to helping women restore their health with effective surgical and non-surgical incontinence treatments like medications or bladder retraining.
Diagnosing Pelvic Pain
Dr. Mathews also sees women affected by a chronic pelvic pain disorder called interstitial cystitis or IC. If you have symptoms of pressure or pain in the bladder or pelvic region, with a frequent urge to urinate, you may be suffering from interstitial cystitis. A urogynecology clinic will offer relief from symptoms by prescribing oral medications, recommending lifestyle changes or performing bladder distention or bladder instillation.
If you live in the Dallas, Plano, Frisco or the surrounding area, and have unexplained pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis or troubling bladder incontinence, don’t suffer in silence. A urogyn has the advanced training to effectively diagnose and treat complex and commonplace problems. Contact the Plano urogyn practice of Dr. J.K. Mathews for a consultation.
