“We are a patient focused center dedicated to providing the best possible outcome to every patient.”

The Advanced Center for Pelvic Medicine is a multi-specialty medical institute founded in 1994. The Center brings together the specialties of Urology, Gynecology, and Urogynecology. We are dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of incontinence and related pelvic disorders, general gynecological disorders and female sexual dysfunction.

The primary focus of the Center is individualized, comprehensive, state-of- the-art care designed to help patients meet their own goals. We treat each patient as a partner in his or her medical care, and make patient education a central component of our care.

Because many urological and gynecological conditions are accompanied by social discomfort or embarrassment, we emphasize sensitivity and discretion when dealing with all of our patients’ concerns.

Services & Conditions We Treat

The specialties of Urology and Gynecology frequently overlap.

To maintain seamless care of our patients and to draw on the specialized expertise of the the two specialties, our center was formed in 1994 – the first known Gynecology/Urology center in the United States.

The Center Specializes in the Following Procedures


*Outpatient Sling Incontinence Surgery



*Botox® for Overactive Bladder

*DaVinci Robotic Surgery

I hesitated to see…

yet another urologist about my bladder pressure. Well, this doctor is different. Dr. Wallace thoroughly read my pages and pages of notes and forms before coming in to meet me, she asked good questions and discussed my discomfort, listened and HEARD what I was saying…

As far as Dr. Benderev…

I came all the way from San Fernando valley to mission Viejo. I wanted the best doctor to do my procedure. I would drive further if need it. The procedure was painless just as advertised, no needle, no scalpel, and well worth it…

My wife is a current …
