Pelvic Floor Clinic

Diagnoses and treats women with problems related to pelvic organ prolapse and leaking urine or stool (incontinence).

Services offered include the following:

  • Education – New patients are required to view the 5 basic modules either online, via Telehealth or in-house classes.  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. 
  • Physiotherapy – Clinic physiotherapists provide education, assessment and treatment for some clinic patients. Direct referrals for physiotherapy are NOT accepted.
  • Urodynamic Testing & Cystoscopy – These specialized tests are done to provide diagnostic information, when required.

The team includes nurses, physiotherapist and physicians all with a focus on patient-centered care, based on patient education.  Patients may be seen by various team members during their treatment at the clinic.  As this is a tertiary care specialty clinic, patients can expect to be discharged back to their referring provider.
