Welcome to my website. I am happy that you are interested in what I do, and who I am. My goal in the creation of this website is to offer you some insight into my practice, what exactly I do and how I might assist you with your gynecological needs. Additionally, I offer some general information about pelvic health and education related to women’s wellness.
As for my background, I have been specially trained as a Urogynecologist and have performed several thousand surgeries on women over the last 14 years. In addition to my specialty training which focuses on correcting problems such as incontinence, vaginal and uterine prolapse, and a number of other pelvic health issues, I also focus on the whole woman and I am developing a practice that has a more holistic focus and mindset. With my education, training and background I feel I can confidently treat any medical problems you have related to your female anatomy. As a woman, I feel I can understand what you are going through as you move through your life and meet the challenges and changes that can occur in your body.
But remember, information on this site is not intended as medical advice. All the information here is for your general information and education. Should you require medical advice, please contact my office and schedule an appointment. I would be happy to address your medical needs in my practice setting where I can maintain your privacy and provide you with the best medical care possible.
Dr. Barbara Plucknett
Information coming soon!
Overactive bladder is a very common non life-threatening, urologic problem that can affect both women and men. It is often characterized by the sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate which can often lead to the loss of urine.
The cause of interstitial cystitis is not completely understood but is thought to be related to an incomplete protective barrier layer on the inside of the bladder.
