Women's health services in Southern Jackson and Cass County

The gynecologic, urogynecologic, breast imaging and surgical services at Belton Regional Medical Center help our patients find relief from chronic conditions, like urinary incontinence, and stay on top of their routine healthcare. We perform a variety of breast imaging procedures to ensure every patient receives the clear image result they need. This also helps us provide thorough care for patients with dense breast tissue.

Our urogynecologists also provide extensive care for patients with pelvic floor disorders, where the muscles that support the pelvic organs become weakened. Patients have access to pelvic floor therapy and surgical treatment options.

We are part of the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at HCA Midwest Health, which is known for excellence in breast care. In addition to cancer care, we offer genetic counseling to create screening prevention plans for women at a high risk for developing breast cancer.

Dedicated nurse navigator

Our breast imaging center has a designated nurse navigator who coordinates patient screenings and establishes next steps for patients who receive a breast cancer diagnosis. Our nurse navigator offers support to patients and families and acts as a patient advocate throughout treatment.

Urogynecologic care

Our urogynecologists are experts in treating conditions affecting the pelvic floor and bladder. We use a range of traditional diagnostic imaging services, such as computerized tomography (CT) and MRI, as well as specialized procedures to diagnose urogynecologic conditions such as:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Pelvic floor conditions, including:
    • Chronic pelvic pain
    • Fallen bladder
    • Pelvic floor hernia
    • Pelvic inflammatory disease
    • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

Treating pelvic floor dysfunction

Once a diagnosis is made, we will identify the best treatment option for your condition. This may include pelvic floor therapy and procedures, such as:

  • Lysis of adhesions (removal of scar tissue causing pelvic pain)
  • Retropubic suspension (closing the urethra and bladder neck to control stress incontinence)
  • Tension-free vaginal tape procedure (using surgical mesh to support the urethra)
  • Transvaginal suspension (moving the urethra and bladder back to normal position)
  • Urethral suspension (strengthening the urethra to prevent stress incontinence)
