An urogynecologist, Dr. Yurteri-Kaplan treats a variety of pelvic floor disorders such as urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder problems and pelvic organ prolapse.

Philosophy of Care

It is an honor to care for women.  I have had the privilege of taking care of women patients during many important times of their reproductive life.  Now, I focus on helping women with pelvic floor disorders such as prolapse, urinary, and fecal incontinence.  I believe it is important to make sure the patient is involved in every step of her health care decision making.  I also believe it is important for the treatment to fit the patient with her goals in mind.  I provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments for my patients.  When a patient does choose to pursue a surgical option, I can provide minimally invasive treatment utilizing incision-less surgery via the vagina or advance technology utilizing laparoscopy or robotics.
