Uro Gynae is a subspecialty of gynaecology and urology that primarily deals with issues related to the pelvic floor in women. If you have any issue related to your pelvic floor such as urine incontinence, your regular gynaecologist will refer you to a urogynecologist for specialised treatment.

Urogynecologist treatment procedures are applied to the following issues of the pelvic floor:

  • Urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control.
  • Overactive bladder
  • Dysfunction in urinary voiding or emptying
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Prolapse of pelvic organs after childbirth, injury or surgery
  • Abnormal pelvic bleeding
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Sexual dysfunction

Different types of uro gynae surgery have evolved over the years with the advancement of the field.

Some of the most common procedures include:

Pelvic Reconstruction

When the muscles in the pelvic region become weak, they may have to be surgically treated. This surgery may be required after child-birth or after any previous surgery to treat other conditions related to the pelvic floor. Pelvic pain, prolapse of pelvic floor organs and urinary incontinence are commonly treated using this surgical method. There are two types of pelvic reconstruction procedures:

  • Cystocele repair which tightens the tissue separating the vagina and the bladder.
  • Rectocele repair which tightens the tissue separating the vagina and rectum.


This is one of the most common urogynaecology procedures. This operation is used to remove the uterus in case of a prolapsed uterus, uterine fibroids, tumour or cancerous growth and endometriosis. The uterus may be removed partially or entirely when a hysterectomy is performed.

Fibroid surgery

Fibroids are types of non-cancerous growths that are found in the uterus. Depending upon the severity of the condition, different procedures are used to remove fibroids:

  • Myomectomy which is the removal of uterine fibroids.
  • Endometrial ablation which is the removal of fibroids using lasers.
  • Uterine Fibroid Immobilization which involves injecting microscopic particles to target the arteries and block blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to shrink over time.
