Fecal Continence Recovery Pathway
Our specially-trained staff and state-of-the-art technology come together to help you regain confidence and quality of life.
How does the Recovery Pathway program work?
When you contact the Fecal Continence Recovery Pathway, you will first interact with our navigator. This provider, who is specially trained in pelvic health, will connect you to the right doctors or care providers for your concerns. The navigator will be available to you during the entire diagnosis and treatment process, to make sure that your care is coordinated, seamless, and effective.
Your team may include doctors and therapists in the fields of gastroenterology, colorectal surgery, or physical rehabilitation. We have the largest pelvic floor physical therapy program in Connecticut, which means you are being supported by expert clinicians with extensive experience.
You will also have access to all of the resources available through the Middlesex Health Center for Digestive Health.
