Helping you recover control of good bladder health

Our department offers clinical diagnosis and professional treatments for pelvic floor and urinary tract disorders, including urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Many of these conditions can be successfully resolved by employing specific treatment options, minor procedures or making lifestyle adjustments.

Skilled specialists, dedicated to improve quality of life

Urogynaecology encompasses both urology and gynaecology, requiring even more specialised skills which you’ll find in our team of urogynecologists, trained nurses and support staff. You will also benefit from our commitment to the latest surgical and medical treatments.

Our team will work closely with you to develop personalised treatment plans that meets your unique needs.

Understanding incontinence, its impact and treatment options:

Stress incontinence

Refers to the leakage of urine during physical activities like coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising. It is caused by weakness of the pelvic floor muscle.

Risk factors:

  • Pregnancy and vaginal birth
  • Obesity
  • Chronic cough
  • Chronic heavy lifting
  • Constipation
  • Age and menopause
  • Genetics

Treatment options:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Physiotherapy
  • Continence device (e.g. pessary)
  • Surgery

Urge incontinence

Refers to the leakage of urine that’s triggered by an urgent sensation to urinate immediately. This involuntary bladder contraction happens even when the volume in the bladder is low. Without an identifiable cause, this condition is commonly called “overactive bladder”.

Risk factors:

  • Neurological disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Menopause
  • Abnormalities in the bladder (e.g. tumour or stone)
  • Bladder outflow obstruction


The condition can will be worsened by:

  • Use of medication that increase urine production
  • Excessive caffeine and alcohol consumption
  • Declining cognitive functions (e.g. due to aging or Alzheimer’s)
  • Functional limitation (e.g. difficulty walking)

Treatment options:

  • Treat underlying cause (e.g. with antibiotic for infection)
  • Control chronic medical condition (e.g. good diabetic control)
  • Topical (vaginal) estrogen

In the absence of identifiable cause:

  • Behavioral changes
  • Bladder retraining
  • Pelvic floor exercise
  • Anticholinergic medication to help relax bladder muscle
  • Injection of botulinum toxin into the bladder muscle
  • Nerve modulation
  • Bladder augmentation surgery
