1-in-4 Women Suffer From Pelvic Floor Disorders

Metro Health has added a Michigan Medicine-trained specialist in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery to its Women’s Health Center team, addressing the growing need for these services in West Michigan.

Emily English, MD, is a fellowship-trained urogynecologist, providing diagnosis and treatment for pelvic floor disorders. Millions of women – roughly one in four – suffer from these disorders, which can result in incontinence, overactive bladder and pelvic organ prolapse.

“This is a significant health problem facing many women,” said Jenevra Foley, Vice President of Specialty Care, Metro Health – University of Michigan Health. “We’re pleased to add Dr. English’s expertise to meet the needs of our patients in West Michigan. This is a continuation of our commitment to women’s health.”

Studies published by the National Institutes for Health have documented a growing demand for urogynecological services nationally, and The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology predicts this to continue through 2030. By adding another skilled provider in West Michigan, female patients now have better access to this in-demand specialty.

“Pelvic floor disorders are very personal conditions that can have a significant negative impact on women’s day to day lives,” English said. “I’m here to work with women to improve their health, comfort and quality of life.”

English earned her medical degree at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. She received further training at two of the nation’s leading gynecologic programs: a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford University Medical Center, and a fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at University of Michigan Health System (Michigan Medicine).

She joins a team providing comprehensive services at the Women’s Health Center opened in 2018 by Metro Health at its Health Park East Campus, 4055 Cascade Road SE, just off the exit from I-96.

Her services and expertise include: surgical and non-surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse (uterine and vaginal prolapse, cystocele, rectocele), urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, fecal incontinence, genitourinary fistulas, problems healing after childbirth and mesh complications. She specializes in native-tissue vaginal prolapse repair and also offers in-office procedures including cystoscopy, bladder botox, percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS), pessary fitting, bladder installation and urodynamic testing.
