About Dr. Chung
With more than 30 years of experience in helping women, including many who have struggled to find symptom relief, Maurice K. Chung, R.Ph., M.D., FACOG, FPMRS, FACS, ACGE, urogynecologist and director of Mercy Center for Endometriosis, Pelvic Pain & Urogynecology, is dedicated to uncovering the source of women’s abdominal, bladder, and pelvic pain, including underlying conditions that may be going undetected.
“Because pain is sometimes the primary issue, we must learn more about pain, including how to examine patients and choose the right procedure, in order to treat it effectively. Sometimes surgeries are successful; however, the patient may have other underlying organ conditions that generate the pain and that may not be recognized prior to surgery.” –Maurice Chung, M.D.
