Facilities

Trus biopsy

Trus biopsy

This is performed in the clinic under light sedation (administered by a consultant anesthetist). The procedure lasts 20 minutes and you can go home when you are fully awake from the sedation and have passed urine post procedure. Post biopsy instructions will then be given. Biopsy results are usually ready in 2 weeks. Preparation includes taking antibiotics one day before the procedure.

Urodynamics

Urodynamics

This is performed for patients with incontinence who are not responding well to medication and who may be contemplating surgery. This is a day procedure lasting about 30 minutes (longer if video images are required). It involves placing thin plastic wires into the bladder and rectum to measure their internal pressures. This is painless and no fasting or preparation is required. A treatment plan will be formulated and discussed with you after the study. Medisave can be utilised for this procedure.

Pelvic floor muscle training

Pelvic floor muscle training

We have a private room where patients are taught pelvic floor exercises by female staff using a variety of methods. All patients will be followed up on a personalised program. Those unable to learn the exercise properly may require a course of electrico- stimulation to "re-learn" the use of their muscles.

Electrical stimulation of pelvic floor

Electrical stimulation of pelvic floor

For patients with weak pelvic floor muscles, electrical stimulation is usually added to strengthen the muscles. Electrical stimulation involves a small, transvaginal probe that provides a very low amplitude, painless electrical current to stimulate the muscles by creating a rhythmic contraction of the pelvic floor musculature. This technique helps with the training and response that patient get with pelvic floor exercises.

Electrical therapy is also used for those with chronic pelvic pain, painful bladder syndrome and urinary frequency.
