Prolapse and Incontinence

Dr Cario has developed a specialty interest in urogynaecology based on his work in the UK. He opened the first Urodynamic Centre in Sydney’s south, the St George Urodynamic Centre in 1995 to investigate and treat with all aspects of Women’s lower urinary tract symptoms and in particular incontinence and prolapse. With his other major interest in Laparoscopic and Robotic surgery he has been able to pioneer newer and more successful treatments for these difficult problems in a more minimally invasive way including all of the conservative non-surgical options. Based on his excellent published results he can offer experience and confidence from a long and proven record.
