Biography

Dr. Milena Weinstein joined the urogynecology practice - at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2008 after completion of fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the UCSD School of Medicine.

Dr. Weinstein and her colleagues May Wakamatsu, MD, and Samantha Pulliam, MD, evaluate and treat patients with a host of urogynecologic-related issues including bladder control problems such as urinary incontinence, as well as pelvic organ prolapse, which can include uterine prolapse, vaginal vault prolapse, anterior vaginal wall prolapse (cystocele) and posterior vaginal wall prolapse (rectocele). The practice offers non-surgical treatment programs such as pessaries, pelvic floor physical therapy and electrical stimulation for these conditions. If the condition can not be corrected by a non-surgical approach, it may be recommended that the patient consider the most appropriate surgical approach. This could include vaginal, laparoscopic and/or robotic assisted surgery.

Dr. Weinstein is also a member of the MGH Pelvic Floor Disorders Service, a multi-disciplinary group comprised of urogynecologists, colorectal surgeons, urologists, gastroenterologists, and a physiatrist. Many patients experience problems in multiple organs, and this service is designed to address all of the problems together.

Dr. Weinstein sees patients at Mass General West in Waltham and at Mass General Hospital Boston, in Suite 4E in the Yawkey Center for Outpatient Care.
