Urogynaecology

Urogynaecology is the area of Gynaecology and Female Urology that involves the assessment and treatment of lower urinary tract (bladder and urethra) and pelvic floor problems including uterine and vaginal prolapse.

The prevalence of urogynaecological problems overall is high. Thirty-four percent of Australian women suffer urinary incontinence. One third of these women will have severe symptoms.

Forty percent of women aged between 45 and 85 at their routine gynaecological checkup will have significant uterine and/or vaginal prolapse.
