What are some of the conditions treated in the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute?
A condition in which involuntary loss of urine is a social or hygenic problem. Incontinence may be classified by type, e.g. stress, urge, reflex or overflow incontinence.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD)
there are two types of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD); low-tone PFD and high-tone PFD. Low-tone PFD refers to an inability to isolate and contract the pelvic floor musculature in the presence of weak or atrophic musculature, frequently resulting in impairment of muscle isolation, contraction and relaxation. Some resultant manifestations include, voiding dysfunction, urinary frequency, urgency and pelvic pain.
Term used to describe a bladder in which uncontrolled detrusor activity (abnormal contractions) is the suspected cause of urinary frequency (including waking to urinary), and/or urge incontinence.
The main objectives of the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute are to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to and state-of-the-art education, treatment and research for all individuals with pelvic floor disorders. The Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute began in 2000 and has educated and treated thousands of patients suffering with pelvic floor disorders, including, but not limited to, overactive bladder (urinary urgency frequency and/or leakage), IC, stress incontinence, pelvic pain, vulvodynia, pelvic floor dysfunction, prostate disorders, bowel disorders (irritable bowel syndrome/IBS), fecal incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
We at the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute are committed to the highest standard of patient care and we aim to provide comprehensive treatment options that consider the physical, emotional and sexual needs of every patient.
