Diagnoses and treats women with problems related to pelvic organ prolapse and leaking urine or stool (incontinence). Treats new mothers with 3rd & 4th degree perineal tears.

  • Education - Most new patients are required to view 5 basic modules online and attend a group Zoom class. Additional supplementary modules and handouts are available.
  • Conservative/Behavioral Therapy – The nurses and physiotherapists see women for assessment and behavioural treatment for the above disorders, which require patient involvement and commitment to modification of activities and lifestyle.
  • Pessary Fitting - Clinic nurses assess and fit women for vaginal pessaries, devices that assist with prolapse and incontinence issues.
  • Medical Intervention – When appropriate, medications may be prescribed that reduce symptoms in women.
  • Surgical Intervention - The clinic urogynecologists will provide surgical interventions for women with prolapse and stress incontinence issues.

The team includes nurses, physiotherapists and physicians with a focus on patient-centered care, based on patient education.

Our goal is to improve quality of life.
