The urologist might perform a physical examination of the male partner, analyze the sperm cells or treat any sexually transmitted diseases in either the man or woman.

There is some crossover with the Subspecialty of Female Urology – the Doctors are Urologists who undergo additional training to be able to manage female urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and interstitial cystitis/PBS. In addition, there are Colorectal Surgeons who have a special interest in anal incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction related to rectal function. The contemporary urogynecological practice encourages multidisciplinary teams working in the care of patients. This is especially important in the care of patients with complex problems, e.g. those who have undergone previous surgery or who have combined incontinence and prolapse or combined urinary and bowel problems.
Dr. Sudhir Chawla, Urogynaecologist manage Patients,i.e., women with urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Patients will usually be assessed using a combination of history taking, examination (including pelvic examination and assessment of prolapse using validated systems such as the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification System and assessment of the quality of life impact using validated questionnaires, including the assessment of sexual function, using Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Incontinence Sexual) Questionaire discussion. A bladder diary is often used to quantify an individual’s fluid intake, and the number of voids per day and night, as well as the volume the bladder, can hold on a day-to-day basis. Further investigations might include urodynamics or a cystoscopy. Treatment usually starts with conservative measures such as pelvic floor muscle training, fluid and food modification or bladder training. Drug therapies can be used for overactive bladder, which may include antimuscarinic drugs or beta 3 receptor agonists – both of this help to control the urgency that is the key component of overactive bladder. If medications fail, more invasive options such as injections of botulinum toxin into the bladder muscle, or neuromodulation are other options for symptom relief. Surgical treatments can be offered for stress incontinence and/or uterovaginal prolapse if pelvic floor muscle training is unsuccessful.
