Gynaecology and Gynaeoncology
Physiotherapy in gynaecology operates within the Women’s Health Unit at Mater Mothers’ Hospital and includes evidence-based management of gynaecology and gynaeoncology patients from pre-op, acute post-op through to post discharge care.
Outpatient care provides this patient group with conservative management of pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic organ prolapse.
Most gynaecological patients requiring surgery are advised to attend a pre-operative physiotherapy class detailing the recommended preparation prior to their surgery and advice for the acute post-operative period and future management.
Further outpatient care may involve the conservative management of various forms of pelvic floor dysfunction.
To find out more about conservative management and our pelvic floor physiotherapy services, please follow the link to pelvic floor dysfunction and continence physiotherapy.
