Dr. Butrick

Urogynecologist Kansas City | Dr. Charles W. Butrick, MDWhile in training at Barnes Hospital/Washington University Dr. Butrick developed a strong interest in caring for patients with prolapsed pelvic organs and incontinence. After returning to his hometown of Kansas City to start his practice, he was fortunate to be able to spend a portion of his first 4 years training with world renowned Urogynecologists and Urologists from around the country. His training not only involved the surgical and nonsurgical therapies for incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, but also the management of complex pelvic pain syndromes. In the mid-nineties, his reputation grew, as physicians around the metropolitan Kansas City area would refer their patients to him for his specialized care.

In 1998, he established The Urogynecology Center and multiple milestones in his career occurred.

Then in 2013, Dr. Butrick became Board Certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.

  1. Moderator of "Round Table Discussion" on Overactive Bladder with several other thought leaders in management of female incontinence.
  2. Panel member of experts in the management of IC/PBS.
  3. Leader of the only Gynecare TVT/Sling training course in the United States in 2012.
  4. Peer review request of American Urological Association.
  5. He was one of ten physicians selected to go to Sweden and train with the developer of the "TVT" – the gold standard in the management of Stress Urinary Incontinence, and he has since been instrumental in training physicians across the country these techniques.
  6. He was one of four founding members of the International Pelvic Pain Society.
  7. He was one of the first Urogynecologists to perform sacral nerve stimulation.
  8. Dr. Butrick is past president of the International Pelvic Pain Society and the International Society of Pelvic Neuromodulation.
  9. Dr. Butrick is also a reviewer for multiple peer reviewed journals.

As his practice grew, he moved to a new facility in 2003 and established the first practice in Kansas City dedicated to the care of women with incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse. He continues to be at the cutting edge in advanced treatment of patients with these problems and continues to be the physician that seems to be able to fix the problems that others cannot.

Dr.Charles Butrick was asked to teach a course on neuromodulation (Interstim®) for bladder control and fecal control problems. This course was at the 2011 annual AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy) meeting in Fort Lauderdale, FL
