Urogynecologists or urogynes are doctors with specialisation in treating women with
pelvic floor disorders. A patient is recommended an urogyn to seek help at treating
the prolapse and incontinence issues. Despite the fact that general physicians,
urologist or OB/Gynaecologist might have the required knowledge to advise on these
issues, an urogyn should be consulted when referred because they have additional
expertise in this area.
So, a urologist or general physician may refer to a urogyn in case of prolapse
problems, fecal or urinary incontinence issues, or for problems with bladder or
rectum emptying, bladder or pelvic pain or fistulas.
