Pelvic floor patient receiving treatment for post-prostatectomy symptoms at Pelvic Health Physical Therapy in Madison, NJ.


Prostatectomy includes a number of surgical procedures to remove part or all of the prostate gland. The prostate gland is situated in the male pelvis, below the urinary bladder. It surrounds the urethra, which carries urine from the bladder to the penis.

Post-Prostatectomy Complications:

• A frequent, urgent need to urinate
• Urinary Incontinence
• Difficulty starting urination
• Slow (prolonged) urination
• Increased urination frequency at night (nocturia)
• Stopping and starting again while urinating
• The feeling that you can't completely empty your bladder
• Urinary tract infections
• Inability to urinate
• Erectile dysfunction

Pelvic floor physical therapy works on releasing the use of sphincters, strengthening pelvic floor muscles, strengthening the core and pelvis, as well as re-educating urinary systems to properly fill the bladder and initiate urinary reflux.
