About Us

The Center for Pelvic Pain at Annapolis is a local and regional center for women seeking evaluation and treatment for pelvic pain that has been difficult to treat. The Center for Pelvic Pain can coordinate care through multiple specialties and can provide specialized medical and surgical techniques not available elsewhere. We work closely with a network of specialists including general surgeons, peripheral nerve surgeons, urogynecologists, physical therapists, gastroenterologists, urologists, interventional radiologists and pain management physicians to coordinate and manage your chronic pain issues. Most importantly, we view the treatment of chronic pelvic pain and chronic vulvar disorders as a collaboration between the patient and their provider.

We find that chronic pain can have more than one cause. For example, a woman with endometriosis or scar tissue from surgery may develop muscle tightness and bowel problems as well as poor sleep patterns and depressed mood. Some or all of these problems may need attention before health is restored. We try to get as complete a picture as possible of all the parts to a person’s problem, including the way it impacts your family, relationships, job, and lifestyle.

Additional Staff:

Gwen has worked beside Dr. Marvel for over a decade. She is the go-to person for many of our patients’ needs. She is our smiling face that greets patients as they enter our office. She is also there to help guide our patients through their necessary paperwork. Jennifer is our valued medical assistant. She meets with the patients before they are seen by the clinician and assists in the exam room. She is also specially trained to perform procedures such as QST testing and bladder instillations.
