Welcome to Urogynecology Associates
We are proud to be the oldest and most experienced specialists in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery serving Philadelphia and the Western Main Line Suburbs since 1996. We are a team of nationally recognized, board – certified, university trained physicians who provide both state of the art and evidenced-based treatments for women who experience pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, as well as other complex gynecologic disorders. Our reputation and experience is recognized both regionally and nationally.
The sub specialty of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (aka Urogynecology) was approved and accredited by the American Board of Medical Specialties in 2012. This recognizes the additional training and specialized expertise of physicians in this field. In 2013, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Board of Urology (who jointly approve the sub specialty) began to offer sub specialty certification to qualified individuals. Dr Toglia and Berger were amongst the first physicians in the United States to become certified in the new subspecialty.
At Urogynecology Associates, we approach each patient with the goal of providing an accurate diagnosis and treatment options that meet the specific needs of the individual.
SURGERY IS A HIGHLY PERSONAL DECISION, ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN
Many women will confront the decision to have gynecologic surgery at least once in their life. One in five women will have a hysterectomy by the age of 60. Many of these surgeries are consider elective, even if they are medically recommended. We understand this decision is highly personal and complicated. We are also well aware that many women do not feel that they have received enough information or support from health care professionals. It is essential to us that women feel adequately informed and personally involved when making these big choices. At Urogynecology Associates, our physicians are University trained, have achieved double board certification, and are amongst the most experienced gynecologic surgeons in the immediate Philadelphia region. We are both nationally and internationally recognized for our surgical expertise. Our physicians and staff will take the time to discuss options and help you make the best decision for your life and lifestyle.
If you are considering major gynecologic surgery, we would like to invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our providers for a second opinion, and to discuss all of your options. For some conditions, hysterectomy sparing options may exist. If you are considering hysterectomy, were you presented with the option to undergo a vaginal hysterectomy, rather than a robotic, laparoscopic, or traditional abdominal hysterectomy? Vaginal hysterectomy, which involves only a single incision within the vagina, is acknowledged by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology to be the least invasive surgical approach to hysterectomy. Evidence demonstrates that vaginal hysterectomy is associated with better outcomes, including less pain, complications, and lower infection rates, when compared with other approaches to hysterectomy. Our surgeons are experienced in performing even the most challenging vaginal hysterectomies.

Our Happy Patients
Changed my life
My uterine prolapse and urinary incontinence issues began when I was in my mid-30s. My symptoms worsened steadily, until last fall when, at age 71, I finally in desperation went to see Dr. Toglia, who, after a thorough evaluation, determined that both of my problems could be addressed through a minimally invasive vaginal procedure, that included vaginal hysterectomy. My surgery went very smoothly, it was painless and very successful. Dr. Marc Toglia has changed my life; because of his skill and caring, I feel like a normal person again.
The results have been fantastic
At 37 years old, I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with a vaginal prolapse. I had had three vaginal births resulting in damage to my pelvic floor. A couple of years prior, Dr. Toglia inserted a TVT sling which successfully fixed my urinary incontinence problem. Now I was ready to address the anterior wall prolapse. Dr. Toglia performed the ProLift procedure and I still can’t believe how successful it has been. Having three children under 10, the recovery couldn’t have been any better and the results have been fantastic. It’s so terrific to feel normal again!
