Treatment and prevention of urine incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction

The pelvic floor is a complex structure situated in the pelvis a formed by a series of small muscles, ligaments and aponeuroses that provide support for pelvic viscera such as the bladder, the rectum, the uterus and the vagina. It also controls the sphincters, preventing the accidental urine or/and fecal leakages.

This complex structure can become damaged during pregnancy, labor, and through inadequate lifestyle habits. Pelvic floor may also be simply genetically weak, a condition which may be associated or not to certain conditions affecting the supporting tissues.

Alterations of the pelvic floor can seriously affect a patient’s wellbeing and have serious repercussions both personal and professional.

Our unit is specialized in the treatment and prevention of pelvic floor dysfunction combining minimally invasive surgery, either laparoscopic or vaginal. A transvaginal mesh is used to keep the pelvic organs in place and to treat urinary problem. If necessary, there is follow-up at the urogynecologic physical therapy unit.
