What We Do

Complex pain requires a complex approach.

Pelvic pain doesn’t exist in isolation. It’s tied to endometriosis, chronic UTIs, interstitial cystitis (IC), IBS, and a myriad of other factors. More often than not, it takes several types of treatments in conjunction to help our patients feel better.

We start by addressing the root causes of chronic pelvic pain, then explore all potential solutions.

What is chronic pelvic pain (CPP)?

Any pelvic pain lasting for more than 6 months can be CPP.

 

There are many different symptoms of chronic pelvic pain, including:

  • Painful periods

  • Painful intercourse

  • Urinary or bladder pain

  • GI symptoms like cramping and bloating

 

CPP involves a number of factors and causes. The most common overlapping conditions are endometriosis, chronic UTIs, interstitial cystitis (IC), and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

 

And because it often coincides with psychological issues, treating CPP requires an open, ongoing dialogue between patient and physician.

Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) treatments and therapies

Drug treatments

Over-the-counter (OTC) medications, prescription medications, and/or hormonal therapy

Holistic therapies and techniques

These include ozone therapy (Dr. Delgado's modality of choice) and acupuncture.

Surgical options

Surgery for chronic pelvic pain is minimally invasive. Dr. Delgado is an expert in robot-assisted excisional surgery and can produce excellent results with minimal downtime.

How we treat CPP

Dr. Delgado specializes in identifying, treating, and managing endometriosischronic UTIs/interstitial cystitis (IC), and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as their accompanying symptoms and sub-conditions (including trauma).

Ozone therapy is Dr. Delgado's modality of choice for CPP.

In some cases, a combination of treatments or therapies may provide the most relief.

Conditions we treat

  • Endometriosis ("endo")
    Endometriosis is a common disorder in which the tissue lining the uterus (the endometrium) grows outside the uterus and surrounding organs. This tissue grows and continues to function like normal endometrial tissue, causing painful periods which progressively get worse and interfere with daily life.
  • Interstitial cystitis (IC)
    Also known as painful bladder syndrome, IC is a chronic inflammatory condition. Common symptoms include bladder pain, frequent urination and urgency, chronic UTIs, lower back pain, pelvic pain, and pain during sex.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
    IBS is a chronic disorder affecting the large intestine. Common symptoms include chronic pelvic pain, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and excess gas
  • Other overlapping conditions
    We treat and manage the conditions that can accompany endo, IC, and IBS in chronic pelvic pain, including vulvodynia, pudendal neuralgia, chronic vaginitis, and trauma. Dr. Brita Allgyer, our board-certified physical therapist and pelvic pain specialist, is proficient in multiple modalities for managing pelvic floor dysfunction and related issues.
