​Women with recurrent urinary tract infection, overactive bladder, and urinary or faecal incontinence often alter their lifestyle believing these are part of the ageing process. One in ten women face moderate to severe prolapse of their pelvic organs, such as the uterus, vagina, bladder and/or rectum. Yet, these conditions are embarrassing for most women to talk about or even mention to their family, friends or doctors.

If you are affected by any of these conditions, our specialists at the Department of Urogynaecology will be able to recommend a treatment or solution most suitable for you.

The KK Urogynaecology Centre is the first one-stop centre in Asia, providing unparallelled services for the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of urinary tract disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction. The Centre serves an average of 19,000 patients every year.

The Centre also conducts training for doctors and nurses in Singapore and overseas, and is intensively involved in clinical research.
