Urogynecology (Urogynaeology), or FEMALE PELVIC MEDICINE & RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY, is a subspecialty of Gynecology concerned with dysfunction of the pelvic floor and bladder, and care of women who have experienced trauma to the perineum during childbirth. Urogynecological problems are seldom life-threatening, but they do have a significant impact on quality of life.
Urogynecology expert witnesses are required in a range of scenarios in medical malpractice litigation. Issues may involve standard of care (e.g. surgical technique), but Urogynecology experts may also opine on issues of harm and their effects on quality of life.
