WHAT IS UROGYNECOLOGY?
Urogynecology is a sub-specialty of Gynecology, and is also known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. A urogynecologist manages clinical problems associated with dysfunction of the pelvic floor and bladder. Pelvic floor disorders affect the bladder, reproductive organs, and bowels. Common pelvic floor disorders include urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and fecal incontinence. Additionally, Urogynecologists are also responsible for the care of women who have experienced trauma to the perineum during childbirth.
Urogynecologists manage women with urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction. The clinical conditions that a urogynecologist may see include stress incontinence, overactive bladder, voiding difficulty, bladder pain, urethral pain, vaginal or uterine prolapse, obstructed defecation, anal incontinence, and perineal injury. They may also care for women with vesico-vaginal or rectovaginal fistulae with specialist training, and in conjunction with other specialties.
