MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. ― East Cooper Medical Group recently welcomed urogynecologist Dr. Cary Fishburne. He will practice at the newly created East Cooper Center for Pelvic Medicine.
Dr. Fishburne’s arrival marks the beginning of a new service line for East Cooper Medical Group, urogynecology. Urogynecologists diagnose and treat pelvic floor conditions such as weak bladder and pelvic organ prolapse.
In addition to performing laparoscopic and robotic surgeries to treat a variety of pelvic conditions including advanced pelvic reconstructive surgery, Dr. Fishburne’s subspecialty is managing urinary and bowel incontinence. He will be working with a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor disorders to provide the continuum of care to patients.
Dr. Fishburne’s goal is to support women throughout all stages of their lives by offering customized treatment to help them maximize quality of life and return to activities they love.
“Dr. Fishburne brings a wealth of experience, compassion and an incredible skill set to East Cooper Medical Group,” said Esther Contreraz, Market Operations Manager for Tenet Physician Resources East Cooper Market. “We will now be able to offer patients a new service—further enhancing the level of care we provide to the community.”
Board-certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Fishburne was the founding physician of Summerville Pelvic Health Specialists before joining East Cooper Medical Group. He also practiced at Novant Health Urogynecology in Charlotte and was in private practice in Huntersville, North Carolina.
