A urogynecologist is a gynecologist who has undergone fellowship training to specialize in treating women with a variety of pelvic floor disorders. Before the specialty was created, women with pelvic floor disorders typically had to visit multiple specialists who treated their pelvic support, urinary, and gastrointestinal problems separately. However pelvic floor components work together as a unit and not independently. Hence the urogynecologist provides integrated comprehensive care for bladder, bowel, and support problems of the pelvic floor.
You should see (or be referred to) a urogynecologist when you have problems of prolapse, and/or troublesome urinary or faecal incontinence or when your primary doctor recommends consultation. Other problems for which you or your doctor might think about consulting a urogynecologist include: problems with emptying the bladder or rectum, pelvic pain or bladder pain, fistulas, and the need for special expertise in vaginal surgery, in short, for any of the problems listed above.
