What is Urogynaecology?
Urogynaecology is a subspecialty or branch of gynaecology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) and prolapse (falling or bulging) of the vagina, bladder and/or uterus. 
A doctor who specialises in this area is called a urogynaecologist. These specialists are qualified Obstetricians and Gynaecologists who have expertise in the field of pelvic floor disorders. 
 
What is Gynaecology?
Gynaecology is the area of medicine that deals with health issues and conditions that are specific to women. This generally includes the female reproductive organs and genitalia. The reproductive organs consist of the ovaries that release an egg every month, the fallopian tubes that lead from the ovaries, the uterus (womb), which is where a baby will grow if the egg is fertilised during sexual intercourse, the cervix (opening of the uterus) and the vagina.
