This is the sub-specialty of urology which covers the investigation and treatment of benign conditions of the lower urinary tract, and related problems within the female genital tract.
The focus is on disorders of function and on inflammatory conditions affecting these systems.
A major component of the subspecialty is neuro-urology. This includes the management of patients with neurological conditions that have an impact on urinary tract and sexual function. These include static conditions (such as spinal cord injury & cerebrovascular disease/strokes), as well as progressive disorders (such as multiple sclerosis & Parkinson’s disease).
The next meeting of the Section will take place during the BAUS 2021 Virtual Meeting.
