Marisa Mastropietro, M.D., who recently joined New York Methodist Hospital as chief of urogynecology, is one of just a few female urogynecologist in the metropolitan area.
Urogynecology, a relatively new field that combines aspects of both urology and gynecology, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the pelvic floor.
Prior to joining New York Methodist, Dr. Mastropietro was chief of urogynecology at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa.She spent three years as a fellow at Indiana University/Methodist Hospital studying urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery.
Dr. Mastropietro credits her interest in the nascent field to the satisfaction of helping women who have long suffered problems such as urinary incontinence without benefit of treatment."Urogynecology serves the growing need of an aging population, providing many new options for treatment," she said.By some estimates, between 30 and 65 percent of all women will be affected by urinary incontinence at some times in their lives.Feelings of shame and embarrassment can make those who experience the problem suffer quietly.In many cases, the most difficult part of treatment can be getting patients to raise the topic.
"If woman can talk about it with their doctors, they'll realize that there are multiple treatments - both medical and surgical -- available," said Dr. Mastropietro."There are many ways that we can help."
Because urinary incontinence is often linked to childbirth and surgery, women are much more likely to experience it than men."It is estimated that anywhere from 18 to 20 million women suffer from it, and women tend to have incontinence two or three times more often than men" said Dr. Mastropietro.

To narrow a woman's urinary canal, Dr. Marisa Mastropietro, a uro- gynecologist at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Allentown, has begun enrolling women in a study of a synthetic compound that is injected into the opening to thicken or narrow it, allowing less urine to escape.
So far, Mastropietro has given injections to 13 women, who will be followed at regular intervals over two years.Individual results should be immediate, but it will probably be years before longer- term results from all the centers are tallied, she said.
