And while she cherishes her Canadian roots, she proudly considers Dallas her home and became an American citizen in 2003. At family gatherings, the rivalry between her U.S. family and extended Canadian family remains a good-natured debate even years later.

And there began her path as a life-long resident of the DFW area. Her interest in medicine began when she worked as a veterinary assistant in high school. What she learned and experienced in that job led to her ambition of becoming a doctor.

Following medical school graduation, Dr. Heintges entered her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the prestigious Parkland Hospital, where she served as one of the Chief Residents in her final year. She has been in private practice at Medical City Dallas since 2003. Dr. Heintges’ has a special interest in pelvic floor reconstruction, menopause and adolescent medicine.
Dr. Heidi Harms

What is a Pelvic Floor? The pelvic floor is made up of muscles that are located at the bottom of your pelvis. These voluntary muscles support your bladder and other organs, as well as help control urination, defecation, and intercourse. These muscles can weaken or overly tighten due to childbirth, age, disuse, or disease. This weakening or over tightening can lead to stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overactive bladder, painful urination or intercourse, and interstitial cystitis. Advanced Women’s Healthcare offers a personalized treatment plan to help women retrain their pelvic floor. What are the benefits? Many patients have been able to completely stop taking medications for bladder issues after retraining these pelvic floor muscles through our program. No medications are required to aid in this process as the entire treatment plan is muscle-based. Relearning how to control the pelvic floors muscles has many positive effects for the female body and can eliminate issues and pain as the muscles strengthen and better control of the muscles is gained. What happens at an appointment? After completion of a brief questionnaire and consultation, patients will begin the first appointment with our Prometheus-trained Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Nurse, Caroline. During the treatment they learn to work […]
