Research Summary

Dr. Takacs' areas of research interest are in pelvic organ prolapse and female voiding dysfunction. Focus has been on use of a specific surgical technique, the Anterior Vaginal Wall Suspension, in support of the anterior vaginal wall for treatment of stress urinary incontinence and prolapse repair. This technique differs slightly from other approaches by consistently stabilizing the bladder neck. In addition focus has been on the use of a vestibular flap urethroplasty for women who develop recurring outlet obstruction.
