Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery
The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Program at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans is an ACGME accredited multisite program currently under the auspices of the Deparatment of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our program offers 2-year Urology and 3-year Urogynecology FPMRS fellowship training. The program encompasses multiple training sites in the New Orleans metropolitan area and in Lafayette including University Medical Center of New Orleans, Touro Infirmary, East Jefferson General Hospital, Women's and Children's Hospital (Lafayette), and University Hospital & Clinics (Lafayette). This geographic variability allows the fellows to see a wide range of disease processes with a significant degree of highly complex and advanced pelvic floor disorders. The Section of FPMRS serves a very diverse population of both indigent and private patients in both cities. The faculty of the FMPRS section consists of both Urogynecologists and Female Urologists in equal numbers several of which are nationally recognized in their respective fields. We enjoy a very collegial relationship within the section that provides excellent exposure to all aspects of both Urologic and Gynecologic reconstructive surgery including pelvic floor reconstruction, voiding dysfunction, urodynamics, neurourology, neuromodulation, urinary diversions, defractory dysfunction, and clinical or basic research. Fellows are trained in vaginal, abdominal and minimally invasive surgical approaches. Additionally, fellows rotate with colorectal surgery and pelvic floor physical therapy to round out their knowledge base. Senior fellows have the opportunity to participate in an international rotation to train in the care and treatment of complex obstetrical fistulas in Africa. The research requirement is spread out over the 3 years for gynecology fellows and over 2 years for the urology fellow. All Gynecology and Urology faculty are board certified or board eligible in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
