Jennifer Trupkin Pollak, MDUrogynecologist
Dr. Jennifer Trupkin Pollak is one of South Florida’s few fellowship-trained urogynecologists. Early in her career, feeling perplexed by the number of women she observed suffering from treatable incontinence-related ailments, Dr. Pollak became interested in the emerging field of pelvic floor dysfunction and pursued fellowship training in urogynecology and female pelvic medicine/reconstructive pelvic surgery. Upon completion of her fellowship, Dr. Pollak launched the Florida Center for Urogynecology with the sole purpose of providing women with expert evaluation and treatment in a private and comfortable setting. To this end, Dr. Pollak focuses the majority of her talents and efforts on the special needs of women with pelvic floor disorders, bridging gynecologic and urologic-type treatments.
