The Women's Pelvic Floor Centre in Geneva offers patients in the Lake Geneva region unique care in a dedicated structure.

What is the pelvic floor? 

The pelvic floor, also called the perineum, is the set of muscles located at the level of the pelvis, which extends from the posterior surface of the pubis to the tailbone.

Urinary incontinence and pelvic pain

Pelvic floor disorders are common conditions that have a major impact on women's daily lives. One in two women suffers from incontinence problems in her lifetime and 30% of women will need surgery for pelvic floor disease.

Urinary and incontinence, pelvic organ and rectal prolapse, and pelvic pain are conditions that negatively impact quality of life. They naturally tend to increase with age and are often not reported because of the shame and taboos caused by them.

Traditionally, the anatomy of the pelvic floor is divided into three compartments in the field of urology, gynecology and coloproctology. However, from an anatomical and functional point of view, the pelvic floor is now considered as one and the same unit.

Multidisciplinary care

Diagnosing and treating the physical, emotional and social problems of pelvic floor disorders requires specific skills. 

In this reflection, the concept of the Women's Pelvic Floor Center of Hirslanden Clinique des Grangettes in Geneva proposes a multidisciplinary team around the patient in order to provide comprehensive care and a caring approach to treat all the dysfunctions of the pelvic floor of  women.

Care covered by insurance 

Most outpatient care (consultations, examinations, etc.) is covered by basic insurance. Only hospitalizations require semi-private or private insurance.
