Linda Kiley, MD

What are the latest developments/innovations in your field? Urogynecology is a subspecialty of innovation. We have minimally invasive treatments for urinary incontinence and will soon have more available that do not require incisions or anesthesia. Developments in treating fecal incontinence are also continuing at a fast pace. Laser therapy for vaginal atrophy and mild incontinence as well as vulvar skin conditions is another new treatment option we offer in our practice now. What differentiates your practice from other specialists in the field? We are dedicated to making a correct diagnosis and providing a customized treatment plan for every patient. We emphasize nonsurgical treatments as a first option and make every effort with those who need or choose surgery to assure they have selected the appropriate procedure and understand all of the pros and cons prior to having the procedure. We also offer physical therapy in our office to treat bladder and bowel problems. Why would a woman choose a urogynecologist for help with problems related to urinary or pelvic function? A urogynecologist has additional training in pelvic reconstructive surgery and pelvic organ function. We are trained to see the pelvis as a whole and not simply either the bladder, the uterus/vagina/ovaries, or the rectum. These structures are all connected, and each has an impact on the others. This helps to properly diagnose and treat the patient. Office Contact: 3375 Burns Road, Suite 204 | Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 11195 Jog Road, Suite #4 | Boynton Beach, FL 33437 561.701.2841 |
