Multidisciplinary team:

The pelvic floor surgery team is a multidisciplinary team composed of a female general surgeon specialised in pelvic floor diseases, gynaecologists, urologist, gastroenterologists, clinical nutritionist and physiotherapist. We provide anoscopy, rectoscopy, colonoscopy, anorectal manometry and rectal sensation, tone and compliance test directly in the proctology office. We also offer endorectal 3D ultrasound, very useful for studying anal fistula and muscular damage after episiotomy. In selected cases, we perform MR defecogram or proctogram, a special magnetic resonance exam performed in order to correctly evaluate pelvic floor prolapses. Full uro-gynaecological evaluation is also available with ultrasound, pap-smear, urodynamics tests and much more.

Therapy:

The team believes that medical therapy has an important role in pelvic floor diseases, suggesting that patients adopt a healthy lifestyle and giving them diet advice in cooperation with our clinical nutritionist and gastroenterologists.

In addition, we prescribe up to date medical therapy and promote pelvic floor physiotherapy with our senior Women’s Health Physiotherapist and in particular

  • Biofeedback and pelvic floor rehabilitation during and after pregnancy
  • Biofeedback for pelvic dyssynergia, urinary and fecal incontinence by our expert female physiotherapist

Surgery:

We offer the latest up-to-date minimally invasive techniques for all female pelvic floor diseases. 

Most of our surgical minimally invasive techniques are performed in day surgery or one night stay setting, guaranteeing a short, smooth and painless postoperative course and quick return to daily activities.
