The work up and treatment of women with Pelvic Organ Prolapse and problems with urinary incontinence has always been a major focus of
interest and expertise at Women's Clinic. In the 1960's and 1970's, Dr. George L Sexton was the only surgeon in Berks County
who was performing advanced procedures to repair Pelvic Organ Prolapse and to correct urinary incontinence. Cystoscopy and urodynamic
studies have been performed at Women's Clinic, Ltd. in the office for many decades. When Dr. Sexton retired from surgery, Dr. Rogers
was brought to Women's Clinic, Ltd. to continue the legacy of treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence. Robert M Rogers, Jr. M.D.
continued Dr. Sexton's work when he decided to discontinue his surgical practice. Dr. Sexton still continues in our office helping
with the work-up and diagnosis of these problems.
Dr. Stephen Fehnel has performed urogynecological procedures since arriving at Women's Clinic, Ltd. in 1981. He has had the distinct advantage of operating for over two decades with Dr. Sexton and Dr. Rogers.
Dr. Fehnel has been performing advanced procedures for pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence for many years.

The problems of pelvic floor prolapse and dysfunction include many symptoms. These symptoms can present as stress or urge incontinence. They can
include prolapse or decent of the bladder, rectum, cervix, uterus and vaginal prolapse. The patient also may present with pelvic or bladder pain. We

with overactive bladder and excessive nighttime voiding and difficulty with voiding.

The surgical options for these problems have been rapidly changing over the past decade. We take pride in offering you the latest treatment options
and the focus of minimally invasive surgery performed with smaller incisions rather than the traditional large incision. These procedures have the advantage of a quicker recovery and less pain. When indicated, a newer technique using artificial mesh graft is utilized. This newer technique has shown a very significant improvement in long-term results.
