Urogynaecology involves assessment, investigations and treatment of women with urinary incontinence (leakage of urine), prolapse (mass or lump in vagina), recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder pain and problems following pelvic floor injury at childbirth such as vaginal pain. Urogynaecology Clinic is a one-stop clinic to evaluate and treat women presenting with urinary incontinence, frequent urination, sudden urge to pass urine, painful urination, difficulty in emptying the bladder and recurrent infections. We work with physiotherapists to provide comprehensive care towards achieving control of the bladder function (continence). Some women might need a special test called Urodynamics to evaluate bladder function.
Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition characterized by descent of the uterus through the vagina leading to a feeling of heaviness, fullness and dragging or aching in the pelvis. The symptoms often get worse towards the end of the day or during a bowel movement and women might see or feel a bulge outside the vagina. These symptoms, although not life-threatening, can significantly affect the quality of life of the individual. We offer a variety of treatment options ranging from non-surgical methods such as pelvic floor exercises and pessaries to advanced surgical options like mesh repairs for recurrent and complicated prolapse.
