Description

Welcome to the Pelvic Floor Clinic.

It is the philosophy of the practice to offer the highest standard of care. The Gynaecology practice is based on the North Shore and is equipped with the very latest in high technology instrumentation including high resolution ultrasound which is used as part of every checkup.

The field of Urogynaecology (a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynaecology) is dedicated to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary or fecal incontinence and prolapse (bulging) of the vagina, bladder and/or the uterus. Our urodynamic equipment is state-of-the-art.

Despite all the high-tech equipment, our approach is to offer very personal and sensitive care, with patient comfort a high priority. We pride ourselves in good communication.

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.
 
Laparoscopy
Many gynaecological investigations are performed by laparoscopy. This is a procedure to view the inside of the abdomen (stomach) through a specially lit type of mini telescope (laparoscope) that is inserted through a small cut in the abdomen. The laparoscope also contains a small camera that sends pictures to a screen that the doctor can watch.
Sometimes surgical procedures (keyhole surgery) can be performed at the same time. A laparoscopy is performed under a general anaesthetic (you are asleep).
