My research has focused on the impact of pelvic floor disorders, specifically pelvic organ prolapse, on a woman’s body image. I have used quantitative and qualitative methodologies to develop and validate a prolapse-specific body image questionnaire. A second area of interest has been comparative-effectiveness studies in the surgical management of pelvic floor disorders.
