Beaumont’s ACGME-accredited FPMRS urology-based fellowship program accepts one urology resident graduate per year who will spend two years in intensive clinical and research training in the evaluation and management of women with pelvic floor disorders. The program is led by Larry T. Sirls, MD, and a multidisciplinary academic faculty that includes six fellowship-trained urologists, an urogynecologist, a colon and rectal surgeon, and gastrointestinal specialists.
The FPMRS program is broadly based on Beaumont’s high surgical volume in prolapse repair (abdominal/robotic, vaginal with native tissue and mesh), male incontinence (artificial urinary sphincter and sling), female incontinence (fascial and mesh sling, urethral bulking agents, complex fistula repair, neuromodulation (sacral, pudendal and percutaneous tibial nerve) and leading-edge technologies for stress urinary incontinence.
The FPMRS fellows also benefit from clinical experience in the Women’s Urology Center, one of the few well developed multidisciplinary outpatient clinics designed specifically for women with pelvic floor disorders. Fellows work with nurse practitioners, physical therapy, clinical psychologists and integrative medicine specialists who collaborate to evaluate and manage highly complex patients.
