Pelvic pain is one of the most complex medical conditions to diagnose and requires expert knowledge from an experienced medical professional. Dr. Yuri Prikoupenko, who is a skilled Rockville MD gynecologist, has years of training in the evaluation and treatment of pelvic pain. The pelvis is a region of the body where many organs are located, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, the bladder, intestine and the appendix. In addition, pain coming from the kidneys and the abdomen can also often manifest itself in form of pelvic pain making it even more difficult to diagnose.

However, it is important to understand that in addition to the information provided here, pelvic pain may be caused by a range of factors that can only be identified by an experienced gynecologist.
