The primary goal of the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) fellowship is to provide fellows with advanced training in the surgical and medical care of patients with pelvic floor disorders. Also to provide an in-depth experience in clinical research sufficient to allow the pursuit of an academic career within Urogynecology/Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery (Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery).
Our program benefits from collaborative, collegial relationships between the Departments of Urology, OB-GYN, Colorectal Surgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, Colorectal Surgery, and Gastroenterology. This training includes a large surgical volume and a diverse range of clinical experiences; including extensive training in vaginal surgery and both 'straight stick' and robotic-assisted laparoscopic approaches. Fellows' broad-based exposure to clinical Urogynecology/Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery is marked by progressive responsibility both in the clinic and hospital settings. The fellows work with six Board-certified FPMRS specialists with different areas of expertise, colorectal surgeons and GI specialists recognized for their work in anal incontinence and defecatory dysfunction, and a pelvic rehabilitation/ pelvic pain specialist.
Colorectal Faculty: Kelly Garrett, M.D.
