Emily Mignogna, PA
Growing up, I had a very positive experience with healthcare and knew I wanted to work in the field. My desire to be involved with the diagnosis and treatment of patients led me to Physician Assistant (PA) school. During my Urology rotation, I had a great experience which led to Urogynecology.
Working in this specialty, I appreciate the relationships that I’m able to form with my patients. I focus on improving the quality of life for patients with pelvic floor disorders such as voiding dysfunction, overactive bladder, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and bladder pain syndrome.
I’m a very good listener and want my patients to feel comfortable talking with me about these sensitive issues. I assure them that all their concerns are important and valid. I present information in a non-judgmental way, reassuring my patients that these problems are common and that there are a variety of treatment options. It’s a process of shared decision making based on conversations about the patients’ goals.
Some of the techniques used for treatment include medications, Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS), bladder Botox™, sacral nerve stimulation, and pelvic floor injections. I’m very happy to join Penn Medicine as they have a phenomenal reputation, sense of pride in what they do and are very supportive of one another as well as having an extensive provider network. I’m excited to learn and grow with such a great group of providers this early in my career.
