What is Female Urology

Female urology is a branch of urology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the common urological conditions affecting women in everyday lives.  Such conditions in women arise due to the unique anatomy of the female urinary tract and reproductive system.

What are the conditions we treat under Female Urology

Physicians at the Department of Urology of BLK treat the spectrum of women’s urologic conditions, including:

  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Overactive bladder
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Urethral syndrome
  • Urinary fistula
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Stress urinary incontinence (urine leakage when women laugh, cough, sneeze, lift things, or exercise)
  • Mesh complications

We understand that many women hesitate in sharing their concerns or discussing these problems or with their doctor. Therefore at BLK, we strive to develop open and considerate relationships with our patients. 

What are the different types of female urological procedures

Our female urologists hold specialisation in treating the unique urological needs of women, by leveraging the use of the latest technology to offer a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. Some of the female urological procedures we treat include:

  • Minimally Invasive Sling Procedures: The MIS procedure involves sling support under the tube that carries urine from the bladder and closes your urethra and bladder neck.
  • Periurethral Bulking Agents: A material known as Bulking agent is injected around the urethra using a non-invasive approach in order to narrow down the urethra so leakage is less likely to occur. 
  • Vaginal Prolapse Repair: It involves grafting of patients own tissue or synthetic material in order to repair and support the weakened pelvic floor structures.
  • Hysterectomy:  In case of severe uterine prolapse hysterectomy is recommended, which involves the removal of the uterus.
  • Robotic-Assisted Sacrocolpopexy: It is a surgical technique for repairing pelvic organ prolapse with the use of robotic surgery.
  • Sacral Nerve Stimulation (Interstim) Therapy: the therapy is used to treat females who experience bladder and bowel problems. It helps to restore such problems by targeting the communication problem between the brain and the nerves that control bowel function. 
  • Bladder And Urethral Reconstructive Procedures: It is a surgical procedure that is used to create a new way to pass urine after the bladder has been removed due to trauma to the urethra. 
  • Vesicovaginal Fistula Repair: The surgery is performed to close the vesicovaginal fistula permanently without encroaching on the ureter. The fistula is repaired either paired either transvaginally or laparoscopically.
