Urogynaecology: Specialising in Women's Lower Urinary and Genital System

Urogynaecology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the lower urinary and genital system in women. These conditions often arise from disorders of the pelvic floor, a complex network of muscles and ligaments that support the pelvic organs and contribute to urinary and fecal continence.

Common conditions treated in urogynaecology include:

    • Pelvic organ prolapse: This occurs when the uterus, bladder, or rectum protrude into the vaginal canal.
    • Urinary and fecal incontinence: The involuntary leakage of urine or faeces.
    • Chronic urinary tract infections: Frequent and recurring infections of the urinary system.
    • Urination difficulties: Discomfort while urinating.
    • Genitourinary syndrome of menopause: Symptoms such as vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse and urinary problems resulting from hormonal changes during menopause.

These conditions can significantly impact a woman’s personal, social and sexual life, imposing limitations on her daily activities.

Modern urogynecological interventions often offer minimally invasive solutions, including physical therapy and pelvic floor surgery, to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.
