After graduating from Creighton University in 1996 as part of the nation’s first doctorate in physical therapy, Dr. Julie Sarton has spent her career practicing pelvic floor physical therapy.

In 2011, she opened her own private practice, Sarton Physical Therapy, which she has since expanded, treating patients from across the country and even internationally. Prior, Julie was the founder and director of University of California Irvine’s Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy program. She served as an assistant clinical professor at UCI and director of The Women’s Health Physical Therapy Program. There, she also created and facilitated the Women’s Health Physical Therapy Fellowship, a post-graduate fellowship training program for physical therapists interested in specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction.

In addition to her work at UCI, Julie served as a lab instructor and lecturer at California State University Northridge’s Physical Therapy Program and as a research advisor for the Azusa Pacific Doctorate of Psychology Program.

Julie, who earned her bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University, is a member of the nation’s first group of physical therapists to become board certified in Women’s Health Physical Therapy. She has treated thousands of male and female patients who have experienced pelvic pain, sexual pain, incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Through the years, Julie has had the opportunity to work closely with many of the nation’s prominent physicians and physical therapists in pelvic floor dysfunction. She has lectured professionally at UC Irvine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Loma Linda University, The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The Society for Urondynamics and Urology and the American Urogynecologic Society.

A published author, Julie’s work has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as The Journal of Sexual Medicine and The Female Patient. In 2006, she was honored with the “Rising Star in Medicine Award” from the Women Sage.

Considered an expert in pelvic pain, she has been featured on The Discovery Health Channel’s Berman and Berman show and in the Orange County Registrar.

Julie is a member of the International Pelvic Pain Society, the Interstitial Cystitis Association, The American Physical Therapy Association, The American Urogynecologic Society and the National Vulvodynia Association.
