It is the philosophy of the practice in Cape Town to offer the highest standard of care. With the major technological advances in medicine, it has been important to equip the practice with the very latest in high technology instrumentation. We strive to keep up to date with the latest research and medical advances in this field. And each specialist brings their wealth of knowledge to solving each patient's problem.
The field of Urogynecology (a subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynaecology) is dedicated to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary or faecal incontinence and prolapse (bulging) of the vagina, bladder and/or the uterus.
We have high resolution 3D ultrasound which is used as part of every check-up. Colonoscopy (colon camera), cystoscopy (bladder camera), defecogram (xray of bowel and pelvis) and manometry (muscle test for pelvis and nerves) are done for specific indications and all form part of a full diagnostic work-up to ensure the best treatment option for each individual.
