Description:
Abstract; Introduction; Pelvic floor dysfunction is a global term used to describe conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, and faecal or urinary incontinence. The Pelvic Floor Centre is a multi-disciplinary clinic for pelvic floor dysfunction. The aim of this study was to assess patient satisfaction following joint colorectal-urogynaecology surgery in the Pelvic Floor Centre. Methods; All patients who underwent a joint procedure in the Pelvic Floor Centre from 1st October 2015 to 31st October 2016 were contacted via telephone. Patient satisfaction was assessed using the Surgical Satisfaction Questionnaire (SSQ-8). Results; Fifteen patients underwent joint surgeries between 1st October 2015 and 31st October 2016. All patients consented to the questionnaire. Patients underwent a variety of combined procedures including vaginal repairs, anal sphincter repairs, mid-urethral slings, perineal injections, and stapled trans-rectal resection of the rectum. Discussion; Thirteen (86.7%) patients were satisfied with their surgery, and would recommend it to other patients with a similar condition. All patients were satisfied that their pain was well controlled after discharge. Eleven (73.3%) patients were satisfied with the time taken to return to daily activities, work, and their usual exercise routine. There is a high level of satisfaction amongst patients undergoing joint colorectal-urogynaecology surgery at the Pelvic Floor Centre. Further investigation into patient satisfaction with the clinic itself and international comparison is warranted.
