Pelviperineology is a medical specialty that deals with diseases of the pelvis, pelvic floor and the perineum (area between the anus and the external sexual organs).

The pelvic floor is viewed as a uniform structure whose function involves different organs such as the bladder, vagina, rectum, and pelvic floor muscles.

Doctors with in-depth knowledge in this specialty diagnose and treat urological, gynaecological and proctological diseases related to the pelvic floor or perineum. For example, pelvic floor weakness, urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence, uterine prolapse or pain/discomfort during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia).

Both medical and surgical treatment methods are used in pelviperineology. Specialists in this area come from medical disciplines such as gynaecology, urology and proctology and work closely with professionals from those disciplines.
