Apollo Hospital Muscat organized a CME on “Recent Advancement in the Management of Urogynecological Disorders” on Friday, 26th October at City Seasons Hotel in the presence of eminent guests including Senior Consultants and Physicians from Muscat and India.
The Key Speaker, Dr. Alpa Khakhar, Senior Consultant Urogynaecologist from Apollo Hospital Chennai, India, stressed on the advanced care and innovative techniques for the effective diagnosis and treatment of urogynaecological disorders including urinary or faecal incontinence which is one of the most common health challenges amongst adult women across the globe.
Urogynaecology disorder, in simple terms is related to the Pelvic floor dysfunction bulging or falling of the vagina, bladder and/or the uterus or displacement from its normal position often causing pain and discomfort which can drastically reduce the quality of life.
Dr. Khakhar emphasized on several contributing factors that are responsible for such disorders including injury to the pelvic region, complications during Pregnancy or child birth and age related issues as the muscles in the pelvis region begin to weaken with age, they aren’t able to provide the necessary support. Additionally, obesity is also found to aggravate the conditions, as the muscles in the pelvic area find it difficult to support the additional weight. However, the good news is that such criticalities can be well managed with the help of the most advanced treatment facilities like Botox, 3D Ultrasound, Cystoscopy, Laser therapies and Pelvis reconstructive surgery depending upon the condition.
