Williamsport, Pa. – UPMC Magee-Womens urogynecologist David Williams, DO, is now seeing patients in Williamsport, bringing a new level of women’s health services to the region. 

As a urogynecologist, Dr. Williams completed specialty training in the evaluation and management of disorders of the pelvic floor. Urogynecology is a subspecialty of gynecology and is synonymous with female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Williams offers treatment for disorders such as:

  • Urinary incontinence (leaking of urine)
  • Overactive bladder symptoms
  • Nocturia (awakening several times each night to use the restroom)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (weakening of pelvis muscles)
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections 

“Patients come to see me with health issues that aren’t necessarily life-threatening, but greatly affect their everyday lifestyle,” said Dr. Williams. “I find it really rewarding to help women with these kinds of issues, as they help restore a sense of dignity and make their lives better. I look forward to expanding care to the community of Williamsport and across north central Pa.”

Dr. Williams received his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa. and completed his residency at the Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. Dr. Williams has been with UPMC since 2004 and is providing care to patients in both the Harrisburg and Williamsport regions.
