Loyola Appoints New Urogynecologist for Women with Pelvic-Floor Disorders

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Cynthia Brincat, MD, PhD, has joined Loyola University Health System as a urogynecologist in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Brincat specializes in treating women with a range of pelvic-floor disorders. She also is an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Dr. Brincat has joined a team of some of the nation’s most recognized leaders in female pelvic-floor disorders who are transforming the care of women with these conditions. She was recruited to Loyola from University of Wisconsin-Madison where she served as an assistant professor in the School of Medicine and Public Health.

Dr. Brincat received her doctorate of philosophy from Loyola University Chicago and her medical degree from Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine. She also completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and a fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Brincat is a member of several professional societies, including the American Urogynecologic Society and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She also has received numerous honors for her work, and she is an accomplished researcher and teacher.

Dr. Brincat will see patients at Loyola’s Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Center in Maywood. This center was the first of its kind in greater Chicago. It is still one of the few centers in the country that offers a single location for the multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of women with pelvic-floor disorders. She also will see patients at Loyola’s Comprehensive Pelvic-Floor Center in Maywood. This is a multidisciplinary clinic that allows physicians to perform several procedures concurrently to manage pelvic-floor issues on patients, enhancing their experience and recovery.
