Treatment Program Options

A unique, comprehensive, non-surgical, multi-disciplinary assessment and treatment program for chronic pelvic, genital and sexual pain.

Since 2001, Dr. Robert Echenberg has carefully developed one of the only comprehensive clinical programs in the nation that has incorporated the newest research in pain while caring for over a fifteen hundred women and a growing number of men with a variety of these painful disorders related to the pelvic region. Large numbers of Dr. Echenberg’s patients have previously undergone multiple invasive diagnostic or surgical procedures for their pain, and have already been seen by multiple medical and surgical specialists.

Starting with the very first visit to our program, it becomes immediately clear that our approach to your symptoms and health is dealt with in a comprehensive, caring and completely individualized fashion. We want to help you towards the goal of “getting your life back” as quickly and as realistically as possible.

The purpose for this direct conversation with Dr. Echenberg primarily will be to give you educational information about your issues and our program. The doctor obviously cannot give you direct medical advice, but you will certainly be able to make a better decision about seeing him in Pennsylvania once you talk with him directly.
