Healthy U: Female Pelvic Medicine



Healthy U: Female Pelvic Medicine

Atlantic, IA – The next session of Healthy U is scheduled for noon on Thursday, June 22nd at Cass County Health System. Mike Woods, MD, FACOG, will present on Female Pelvic Medicine.

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and other tissues that form a sling or hammock across the pelvis. In women, it holds the uterus, bladder, bowel, and other pelvic organs in place so that they can work properly, and the pelvic floor can become weak or be injured. Dr. Woods will discuss symptoms and treatments.

Dr. Woods attended undergrad at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and continued his training at the Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine to complete his Medical Doctorate. His residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology was completed at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Woods is board certified in obstetrics/gynecology as well as a new subspecialty, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). Dr. Woods was among the first in the United States to earn the FPMRS certification, and is currently the only board-certified FPMRS specialist who lives and practices in southwest Iowa. In addition to his board certifications, he is a Fellow in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG).
