Mission Statement

The Michigan Bowel Control Program (MBCP) is a multidisciplinary team dedicated to the treatment of patients affected by defecation disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction. The expert team includes Urogynecologists, Gastroenterologists, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians, Surgeons, Nurses, Radiologists, Physical Therapists, and Nutrition experts. The integrated and collaborative efforts of the MBCP offer a unique, dynamic and holistic approach to patient care.

  • Evidence based practice
  • Experience of a dedicated and knowledgeable multidisciplinary team
  • Mutually established patient-centered goals
  • State of the art testing to arrive at an accurate diagnosis
  • Dynamic, integrated, innovative treatment approaches
  • Comprehensive educational materials
