Urogynaecology and Pelvic Floor Clinic
We offer a comprehensive service for women of all ages who suffer with bladder and bowel incontinence, and prolapse of the genital organs, working in tandem with the Wirral Integrated Continence Service.
In addition we provide a tertiary level service for women with recurrent prolapsed and we are a national training centre for reconstructive and pelvic floor surgery.
- Urinary incontinence, including urinary frequency and urgency
- Urodynamics Investigations and treatments
- Follow-up of women who have had third or fourth degree tears with or without bowel symptoms
- Pelvic organ prolapse, which may give women symptoms of dragging in the pelvic area, difficulty emptying bladder or bowel, general discomfort in the vaginal area.
The first appointment includes a number of questions to establish the extent of the problem. An internal examination may be performed with full consent. If there is thought to be a bladder problem urodynamics investigations may be performed by a specialist nurse. A toilet connected to a computer is used to analyse how well your bladder is functioning.
Possible treatments involve pelvic floor exercises and bladder and bowel training, carried out by the physiotherapist and clinical nurse specialist either on an individual basis or in group settings. There are a number of different medications and in some cases surgery may provide the solution to your problem.
Patients should be referred directly to this service by their GP or other health professional.
Monday - Friday 8.00am to 5.00pm
