Urogynaecology

Uro-gynaecology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of urinary incontinence and dysfunction of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor includes muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that help to support the womb, vagina, bladder and rectum.

It can be damaged by a number of conditions such as pregnancy, childbirth, chronic disease, surgery and repeated heavy lifting. Some problems due to pelvic floor dysfunction and their symptoms include:

  • incontinence: loss of bladder or bowel control
  • prolapse: descent of pelvic organs (bladder, womb, vagina or rectum)
  • emptying disorders: difficulty urinating or moving bowels
  • overactive bladder: frequent need to pass urine
  • bladder pain
  • recurrent urinary tract infections (cystitis)
