I About The Programme
Name of Programme
Urogynaecology Fellowship Programme
KK Urogynaecology unit was set up in April 1993 with the aim of providing world-class services for the management of lower urinary tract disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction. The opening of KK Urogynaecology Centre in November 2001 affirms the unit’s commitment and vision to provide quality care and services for our patients.
The KK Urogynaecology Centre is the first urogynaecology centre in Asia, providing unparalleled one-stop services for the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of female bladder disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction, with an average of 20 000 patients’ attendances each year. On July 2008, we were promoted from unit to full department status. At present, we have one fully-trained specialist, 3 visiting specialists, 2 staff registrars, a few rotating residents, 3 urogynaecology trainees, 3 urodynamic nurses and 6 clinic specialist assistants serving our patients at our centre. In addition, the centre provides an excellent and challenging opportunity for training local and overseas doctors and nurses, and is also actively involved in research.
