Using Conservative Approaches First

As a woman, your progress through life may bring unique conditions and issues with bones and muscles that can interfere with daily activities. If pregnancy, childbirth or pelvic floor disorders create discomfort for you, the physical therapists (PTs) at Pella Regional can design an individualized program of care to help you maintain a strong, healthy body and manage any related health issues. Starting with conservative approaches to care, our PTs can help you find relief from:

  • Incontinence from weakened pelvic floor muscles – Learn about equipment specifically intended to help incontinence and take advantage of exercise programs, designed and instructed by Pella Regional PTs, to help strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
  • Pelvic pain from a variety of causes – Because daily pelvic pain can affect every aspect of your life, you’ll want to visit with our practitioners to see if your condition may respond to physical therapy.
  • Pregnancy pain – Avoid risk to the fetus from using medications during pregnancy. Work with our physical therapists to help relieve your pregnancy pain through noninvasive treatments such as massage therapy and exercise programs designed for your specific situation.

Advanced Treatments & Surgical Options

When lifestyle changes, medications or other treatments no longer provide relief of your symptoms, your gynecologist may recommend the option of surgery. Ask your doctor if you might be a candidate for minimally invasive or robotic-assisted procedures that offer many benefits, including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Quicker recovery

At Pella Regional, you and your gynecologist can select from a variety of robotic-assisted gynecologic surgeries and other surgical procedures, such as:

  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Pelvic prolapse repair
  • Removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries
  • Robotic-assisted hysterectomy
  • Tubal ligation

Helping You Navigate the Insurance Maze

Because today’s insurance policies come with significantly higher co-pays and deductibles, you’re likely to face larger out-of-pocket expenses for your health care. Our team at Pella Regional help you prepare for the cost of your medical procedure, understand the payment process and avoid financial surprises.

Our team will review your specific insurance situation and your doctor’s recommended procedure. Then, staff will estimate your actual cost and work with you to find the best method of payment.

Preparing for a baby? Pella Regional also offers opportunities to pre-pay for your maternity care.

We understand that sometimes paying for deductibles, co-insurance, or copays may be difficult. If you are unable to pay all or part of your responsibility, please call the Business Office at 641.628.6700 to discuss options for financial assistance.
