The Oxford Pelvic Floor Centre provides specialist services for people with pelvic floor disorders living in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and beyond. Our clinical practice occurs in an environment of clinical excellence supported by detailed audit of our practice and outcomes satisfying the highest standards of clinical governance. We also have an active programme in laboratory and clinical research to ensure that we can continue to lead future developments in the field.
What is a pelvic floor disorder?
Pelvic floor disorders are common in men and women of all ages. In broad terms they can be divided into incontinence and obstructed defaecation (difficulty with emptying the bowel). Many patients will have a combination of both problems.
Patients are often reluctant to seek medical advice through embarrassment or a mistaken perception that nothing can be done. However, pelvic floor disorders are common and in Oxford we see about 500 new patients annually with these problems in our specialist pelvic floor clinics.
Can I access the Oxford Pelvic Floor Centre?
Any patient is entitled to have access to these services depending on his or her
Primary Care Trust (PCT). 50% of patients referred to the Oxford Pelvic Floor Centre come from outside of the Oxford Region.
