Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Pelvic floor disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, etc., are surprisingly common and represent a growing health problem in women across the globe. These types of diseases impose obvious symptoms, which adversely affect the lives of millions of women both physically and psychologically.
The therapeutic approaches to treat these disorders include non-surgical and surgical treatments. Over the past few decades, pelvic floor surgery has experienced significant improvements and continues to evolve. In addition, it can be tailored to suit the individual needs of each patient. In addition to the traditional approach, minimally invasive and robot surgeries have also become more common.
This Special Issue aims to collect state-of-art research on urogynecology and pelvic floor surgery. Original articles, reviews, and communications are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
