Leslie Clark, MSN, APRN, AANP-CE, is a board-certified senior nurse practitioner with Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies Center for Urogynecology. She diagnoses and treats acute and chronic gynecological conditions, performs annual gynecological and breast examinations, provides patient education with an emphasis on prevention and early detection of disease and more.
Services at the Center for Urogynecology
Leslie and the team at the Center for Urogynecology understand women's bodies are complex and require expert preventative care and prompt, expert diagnosis and treatment of disease and disorders. She provides a full range of care for gynecological conditions such as chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis and abnormal bleeding.
Urinary incontinence issues are common after childbirth and with aging. Some women also experience fecal incontinence and difficulties due to the shifting or bulging of the vagina, bladder, rectum and other structures. While these topics may be uncomfortable to discuss, Leslie offers compassionate care for these conditions, including a wide range of options from medication to physical therapy to minimally invasive surgery for repair and relief.
When surgery is needed, the center recommends a minimally invasive approach whenever possible and uses the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform routine and more advanced procedures. As a result, patients typically experience less pain and shorter recovery times.
