We at Ankura proudly offer the much-needed service of urogynaecology. This is a sub-specialty of gynaecology which deals with the urinary and pelvic floor related disorders in women. The pelvic floor is an important part of the body that supports a woman’s urinary bladder, uterus, and rectum. Any weakness in the muscles of the pelvic floor or problems related to the structures in it can lead to multiple issues. Women may experience problems such as inability to hold urine due to stress or urge, leakage of urine on laughing, or sneezing, pain or discomfort in the vaginal area, etc. This speciality offers assessment, investigation, and treatment for women with any such related disorder. Urogynaecologists are gynaecologists who specialise further to treat such urological problems; thus, they understand a woman’s specific need for such care.
The problems dealt in this speciality include:
- Urinary incontinence
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Bladder pain
- Pelvic floor injury after childbirth
- Faecal incontinence
The treatment of urogynaecological problems can range from exercises to surgery. Such problems can be resolved with good care taken at the right time. The most important aspect of urogynaecological issues is sharing them! Such problems can be commonly faced and thus should not be hidden by women, which is very crucial for an early cure.
