Meet Center for Pelvic Wellness Director Dr. Grace Biggs

Grace Biggs, MD, is Griffin's Director of Pelvic Wellness and practices all aspects of urology, with a particular focus on female urology including pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence issues, overactive bladder, non-invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and reconstructive pelvic surgery.


Hear from our patients:


  • I was very impressed by Dr. Biggs. She is well educated, understanding, and explained everything in detail. Her knowledge with regard to my medical situation created a level of comfort and trust I would recommend her highly to any person especially one seeking a competent understanding female doctor. Kathleen Derby, CT
  • Unlike other doctors whose practices have been bought out by Yale New Haven Hospital, Griffin Faculty Physicians take time to talk with their patients, listen to their questions and concerns and do not rush the patients. They and their entire staffs are wonderful. Have left all of our physicians who practices have been take over by Yale New Haven. Going to them became a horrible experience once they were bought out by Yale New Haven Hospital and their charges more than doubled or tripled. Outrageous! Susan Orange, CT
  • My overall experience was excellent from the minute I walked in the door. Despite a negative MRI (following a concerning ultrasound) conducted prior to my appointment with Dr. Biggs, I was still really concerned about my health. She was amazingly reassuring and conducted a thorough examination. I was extremely pleased with her demeanor (friendly yet professional) and her attention to me and my concerns. Sharon Hamden, CT
  • I was a new patient for Dr. Biggs and she was outstanding. Kind, caring, welcoming, informative, professional and went out of her way to make me feel respected and comfortable. I love everything about this practice and I am never disappointed by the care I receive - always top notch care in a very welcoming and professional environment. Catherine Derby, CT

 

HOW WE CAN HELP

 

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  1. Do you wake up to go to the bathroom?
  2. Do you leak urine unexpectedly?
  3. Does urine loss occur during coughing, sneezing, laughing, bending or lifting?
  4. Do you occasionally have leakage of stool while passing gas?

If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, you may have urinary or bowel incontinence.

Pelvic Floor disorders are common in men and women, but many times the person is reluctant to seek medical attention due to embarrassment, the feeling that nothing can be done or that it is a normal part of life. At the Center for Pelvic Wellness at Griffin Hospital, we want you to know you are not alone and you do not have to live with these problems. We are here to help.
