Our Approach
Center for Pelvic Floor Disorders

Our goal is to restore confidence, dignity, freedom and enjoyment of life to women suffering from conditions of the pelvic floor. These common conditions - urinary leakage, fecal seepage, falling bladders, and pelvic pain - often plague women and dramatically impact their lifestyle.

Our innovative and comprehensive treatment programs start with an accurate diagnosis. We use rehabilitative and curative care plans that are attentive to our patients' emotional, educational and physical needs. Where surgery is required, your care plan may include both pre- and post- operative physical therapy to rehabilitate your pelvic function.

About Surgical Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repairs

As an OBGYN and Urogynecologist, Dr. Ashford is uniquely qualified with both the training and experience necessary to successfully repair even the most advanced cases of pelvic organ prolapse. If you are currently suffering from this condition, there is hope and help.

We have provided examples of some of Dr. Ashford's prolapse repairs. The images are taken immediately before and after surgery. Please excuse the graphic nature. These are for educational and informative purposes only.

MN Women's Care: OBGYN and Urogynecology

The MNWC Difference

The pelvic floor conditions referenced here and their treatment fall under the subspecialty of urogynecology – a medical area that focuses on disorders of the female pelvic floor such as pelvic organ prolapse (bulging out of the uterus and/or vagina), urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and constipation.

Dr. Ashford is one of very few board-certified Reconstructive Pelvic Floor Surgeons (Urogynecologists) in the state. His expertise makes him uniquely qualified to provide care for all pelvic floor disorders, including the most complex cases.

We are committed to alleviating common pelvic floor disorders in women using the most advanced and proven techniques available. Call us at 651-600-3035. There's help and there's hope.

What our patients say:

I enjoy coming to Minnesota Woman's Care because I feel like I am getting the best treatment possible and the staff makes me very comfortable. Dr. Ashford figured out what was wrong with me and why I was in so much pain when no one else could. He was with me through my whole pregnancy and even after. I feel like I am very well taken care of and I would highly recommend Dr. Ashford to any woman.
