With ever increasing awareness of symptoms and disorders related to “Pelvic Floor Dysfunction” comes the need for recognition, assessment and treatment tailored to specific patient’s demographics. The patient and condition profile mandate partnership that combines multitude of disciplines. The multidisciplinary approach is the key to successful outcome not only in terms of cure but also more importantly in terms of adjustment of expectations and realistic outcome measures.
With emergence of new techniques and approach to an array of often complex and debilitating problems, we aim to bring together primary care (general practice), hospital practitioners (colorectal surgery, urogynaecology, radiology, mental health) and the allied health (physiotherapy, specialist nursing and physiology) to share knowledge, experience and expertise.
