What is Urogynecology?
Urogynecology is a subspecialty within urology and gynecology that focuses on disorders of the female pelvic floor.
Urogynecologists are specifically trained to treat pelvic floor disorders, including urinary or fecal incontinence, constipation or pelvic organ prolapse (displacement of the uterus and/or vagina).
Prolapse and incontinence frequently occur together and both conditions may result from damage to the pelvic floor after the delivery of a baby. Other factors may include heavy lifting, chronic coughing, severe constipation and obesity.
Our New York City-based specialists provide a comprehensive urogynecology program that addresses the full range of pelvic floor disorders. Our nationally recognized medical experts perform comprehensive diagnostic services in order to identify an optimal treatment tailored to a woman’s individual condition, including a broad range of non-surgical and surgical options.
As a large number of women can be affected by other conditions related to pelvic floor disorders or have other health factors, our team of physicians also work jointly with other specialists across Weill Cornell Medicine to build comprehensive treatment plans that treat each woman uniquely according to her needs.

Talking about Saya Segal, MD, FACOG
Dr. Segal showed compassion from the first day we met. She assured me and made me feel better about my condition. I felt she was the best surgeon to perform my procedure.

Talking about Patrick Culligan, MD
The first time I went to Dr. Culligan was a year ago for issues with my bladder. After I followed his recommendations my problem was gone. Now I see him periodically for a checkup. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable and has a great personality. It was the right decision to see Dr. Culligan and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a doctor experienced in Urogynecology. His nurse assistant Irina Kats is also great. She is very helpful, professional and pleasant to communicate with, always returning my calls when I have questions. Excellent Doctor, great personnel, and always a pleasure to see them during an appointment.

Talking about Tanaka J. Dune, MD
My experience being treated by Dr. Dune was unequivocally the best experience I've had with any doctor in my entire life. And that's saying a lot considering the list of doctors I've sought for treatment is pages long due to past history with Lyme Disease. I had been seeing another specialist who put me on antibiotics for years without any success or improvement in my symptoms. Finally, a friend referred me to Dr. Dune and I immediately felt I was in good hands. She is professional, enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable, and doesn't just try to temporarily put out fires by throwing pills at the problem. She genuinely wants to help with long-term solutions and what I especially appreciated about Dr. Dune is she really takes the time to educate and thoroughly explain the issue/treatment. She is a godsend and has dramatically improved my quality of life. After 14 years of experiencing symptoms, Dr. Dune successfully treated me.

Talking about Bilal Chughtai, MD
One of the best doctors around; spends a lot of time answering all of your questions, always returns a message to call back, excellent bedside manner, young but extremely knowledgeable with a holistic approach. He evens walks you out of the office to the administrative staff at the end of you’re visit, need I say more about Dr. Chugtai.
