For many men and women, chronic pelvic pain is a source of daily frustration, lowering their overall quality of life. To benefit our patients and to further understand pelvic pain, our Department of Urology pelvic pain physicians and researchers are involved in the most up-to-date clinical and translational research. Current research projects include studying autonomic dysfunction of chronic pelvic pain, the genetic etiology of female pelvic floor conditions, as well as using pelvic floor botulinium A toxin injections to treat myofascial pelvic pain.


Recently through University Hospitals Urology Institute's Pelvic Pain Center, our pelvic pain experts collaborated with the National Institutes of Health in a multicenter trial that revealed how physical therapy significantly benefits patients diagnosed with urological chronic pelvic pain syndrome.


In addition, we have established the only fellowship in the country dedicated to providing advanced physician training in the area of chronic pelvic pain.
