Department of Urogynaecology

Urogynaecology, also known as female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS), is a subspecialty of gynaecology and urology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women. These disorders involve problems with the pelvic organs, muscles, and connective tissues that support and control the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. Urogynaecologists are physicians who have specialized training in this field and are experts in managing these conditions. 


Here are some key aspects of urogynaecology:

Pelvic Floor Disorders:

Urogynaecologists diagnose and treat a range of pelvic floor disorders, including:

Urinary Incontinence:

This condition involves involuntary urine leakage, which can occur with activities like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. Stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence are common types.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP):

POP occurs when the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, drop or bulge into the vaginal wall due to weakened pelvic floor muscles and ligaments.

Overactive Bladder (OAB):

OAB is characterized by a frequent and urgent need to urinate, often leading to urinary incontinence.

Faecal Incontinence:

This condition involves the involuntary leakage of stool or gas and can result from pelvic floor dysfunction.
