Meet Dr. Carmel
Female Urology Specialist
Life can be very limited and isolating for people with moderate to severe urinary and bladder-related problems such as incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, neurogenic bladder, fistulas, and complications of transvaginal mesh.
Patients who suffer from conditions like these will be glad to know that urologist Maude Carmel, M.D., offers the most advanced therapies, technologies, and techniques to successfully treat them.
“I deliver therapies that make a difference in patients’ lives,” says Dr. Carmel.
“There are so many treatment options today for these conditions and many of them are relatively simple surgeries,” Dr. Carmel says. “It’s encouraging for our patients and rewarding for us to be able to give these patients their lives back.”
She performs all types of related surgeries – vaginal, robotically assisted, and abdominal.
Fellowship-trained in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Carmel is also able to treat complex cases such as patients with recurrent problems, failed previous repairs, and complications from previous treatments, including those from transvaginal mesh.
Because each person’s issues, anatomy, and treatment goals are unique, Dr. Carmel says she strives to educate patients about their options and lets them decide which option fits them best.
“I really try to personalize patient care, to talk with each patient and explain the different approaches, and to discuss the best options for them, their problem, and their lifestyle,” Dr. Carmel says. “At the end of the day, I want to provide the treatments that patients feel are best for them.”
