Interstitial Cystitis (IC) and Chronic Pelvic Pain are interrelated diagnoses, most commonly occurring in young and middle aged women.  They are characterized by painful urination, frequent urination and pelvic pain.  Many patients are not diagnosed in timely manner and do not receive appropriate care for many years until they are correctly diagnosed.

We specialize in evaluation of women and men with chronic pelvic pain and symptoms suggestive of interstitial cystitis.

Many established and newly emergent treatments are effective in treatment of IC/Pelvic pain.  We offer the following treatments that have been shown to be beneficial for appropriately selected patients:

  • Medical treatment (Elmiron, SSRI, etc)
  • Intravesical treaments (DMSO/lidocaine/etc)
  • Botox injections
  • Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Program with Trigger Point therapy
  • Neuromodulation (Interstim (Sacral Nerve Stimulation) and Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (Urgent PC)
  • Surgical treatment
