According to National Institutes of Health, one quarter of women have experienced at least one type of pelvic floor dysfunction—and this figure represents only those women who have shared their experiences. Many women suffer from conditions like pelvic pain or incontinence and do not seek treatment due to a lack of education around pelvic floor health.

However patients in Kirkland have access to two leading pioneers within this specialized field of medicine. EvergreenHealth physicians Drs. Lora Plaskon and Mia Swartz are trained in the field of urogynecology, and both hold double board certifications in urology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS).

Drs. Plaskon and Swartz will be hosting free seminars for the community on July 11 and July 26, where women and girls will learn about common pelvic conditions and treatment technologies, including modern urology care and pelvic floor muscle physical therapy services.

Participants can register for the pelvic health seminars by calling the EvergreenHealth 24/7 Nurse Navigator & Healthline at 425-899-3000.
