According to a recent Gallup poll, one in seven women between the ages of 18 and 50 experience some sort of chronic pelvic pain. The pain, which can be a symptom of another disease or a condition of its own, can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, treatment is possible, explains Dr. Bradley Sullivan, OB/GYN, with Midwest Women’s Healthcare and Research Medical Center. The treatment of pelvic pain varies depending on the cause, how intense the pain, and how often the pain occurs. HCA Midwest Health System offers a range of preventive and routine gynecologic and primary care in addition to minimally-invasive surgery and the newest robotic-assisted technology for conditions such as chronic pelvic pain.
