The Women’s Urogynaecology service specialises in the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) in women of all ages.
|Pelvic floor dysfunction may include:|
- bladder dysfunction (usually urinary incontinence)
- vaginal dysfunction (usually prolapsed of uterus and vagina)
- lower abdominal dysfunction (usually poor bowel control)
|Overall 46% of women suffer a form of PFD. The Women’s Urogynaecology service provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Our team consists of Urogynaecologists, Colo-rectal surgeon, Continence Nurse, Physiotherapists and Dieticians. |
The service also includes a Continence Clinic to assess and manage bladder dysfunction with a range of conservative management strategies.
The Urogynaecology Pelvic Floor Unit provides:
- clinical and investigative assessment of PFD.
- non-surgical (e.g. physiotherapy, medication) and surgical treatments.
- the promotion of a better quality of life for women with PFD.
