Childbirth injuries

Dr. Denehy also repairs extensive perineal lacerations occurring after childbirth that may be associated with incontinence of feces and/or urine as well as marked vaginal or pelvic relaxation. These procedures are also performed transvaginally, resulting in minimal discomfort and a shorter hospital stay. Urologic/rectal fistulas associated with incontinence of urine, stool, or flatus and their drastic effect on patients' quality of life are diagnosed and managed. Chronically painful incisions with neuromas that may accompany abdominal incisions, perineal lacerations or may occur after hysterectomies are also addressed.
