Dr. Lemieux joined the Jewish General in 1995, after five years as Co-Director of the Uro-Gynecology Unit at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. She is the Urology Department’s lone specialist in Uro-Gynecology — and one of only four in Quebec. Female incontinence and urogynecological prolapse, which includes dropped bladder and uterine prolapse, are the main conditions she treats. Women who have given birth have a 25 percent risk of experiencing incontinence at some point in their lives. But today’s advanced treatments, including pelvic floor re-education (a form of vaginal physiotherapy), custom-fitted pessary devices and medications such as Botox injected directly into the bladder, can help women of all ages regain normal urological health.
