Pelvic Floor Centre

We aim to provide rapid access specialist clinics and diagnostics with excellent quality of patient care.

Pelvic Floor conditions treated include:

  • Chronic Constipation

    Chronic constipation is infrequent bowel movements or difficult passage of stools that persists for several weeks or longer. Constipation is generally described as having fewer than three bowel movements a week.
  • Difficult Evacuation

    Difficult evacuation is defined by two or more of the following symptoms at least 25% of the time: straining, lumpy or hard stools, sensation of incomplete evacuation, sensation of anorectal obstruction or blockage, and manual maneuvers to promote defecation.
  • Faecal and/or Urinary Incontinence

    Fecal incontinence is the inability to control bowel movements, causing unexpected stool (feces) leakage. Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. These are extremely common problems and there are many highly successful treatment options available.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse

    Uterine, vaginal, bladder or rectal prolapse.
  • Endometriosis

    An often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus (the endometrium) grows outside your uterus.
  • Pelvic Pain

    There are many potential causes which can be determined and treated.
  • Bladder Dysfunction

    Bladder dysfunction refers to problems with urination.
