About Us
The National Center for Pelvic Pain Research (NCPPR) is a center devoted to research and treatment of pelvic pain syndromes in men and women using the Wise-Anderson Protocol. Pelvic pain syndromes treated at NCPPR in include prostatitis, pelvic floor dysfunction, levator ani syndrome, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis, urethral syndrome, pelvic floor myalgia among other diagnoses.

The Wise-Anderson Protocol (popularly called the Stanford Protocol for many years), was developed at Stanford University in the Department of Urology by David Wise, Ph.D. and Rodney Anderson M.D. Drs. Wise and Anderson have published a book about this protocol called A Headache in the Pelvis, now in its 5th edition. We have published the results of this treatment in articles in the Journal of Urology and have presented this work at major Urology meetings and at the National Institutes of Health available in abstract form on NCPPR offers 6 day intensive clinics for men and women with muscle related pelvic pain on a monthly basis.
