"URPSSI to be the prime organisation in India promoting women's health from relieving women from Urogynecological problems by practising evidence based medicine with highest ethical standards through it's committed professionals”.

" Why can't a general gynecologist or urologist tackle these problems ? Anatomically the Urological and Gynaecological organs are closely related, hence gynaecological problems can present with urinary symptoms and vice-versa. As function and dysfunction of Genital and Urinary tract are interrelated, it requires the expertise of both specialties which rationalize the necessity for the subspecialty of Urogynaecology.
Urogynaecology specifically addresses problems requiring all kinds of reconstructive pelvic surgeries like pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontenence, faecal incontinence and fistulae arising from difficult labours involving genital, urinary and intestinal tract. It involves management of all dysfunction involving the genital and lower urinary tract and other related conditions.
“The glory of medicine is that it is constantly moving forward, that there is always more to learn” - William J Mayo (1861-1939).
Annual operative workshop and conferences in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic surgery (URPS) has been conducted by URPSSI from 2005 and it will continue to hold this program in future too with an objective of promoting learning from world renowned Urogynecology experts.
The growing scientific advances demand a continual learning process. Regular and lifelong knowledge acquisition of newer management modalities becomes an absolute necessity for the medical fraternity.

Ladder of learning constitute 3 fundamental steps:

  • Learning and further refining what was learned earlier
  • Learning and continuing learning to keep pace with the scientific advances
  • Learning and unlearning obsolete methods & concept
  • Relearning newer techniques & conception
"It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change"
- Charles Darwin

Just as Charles Darwin, the father of evolution had said, “The fittest will survive”, we in our medical profession know that only those who keep abreast with the latest developments and research can only survive in the medical world, where changes are inevitable and indispensable.

Great surgeon Theodoric (1205- 1296) has said that “it behooves practitioners of surgery to frequent the places where skilled surgeons operate, and to attend these operations diligently and commit them to memory”

Adopting this, URPSSI has conducted annual operative workshops and conference in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic surgery, which resulted in periodical learning from international and national experts in Urogynecology.
URPSSI has done 18 operative workshops so far and it will continue to hold a similar program in the future too, why because excellence can only be accomplished by training and habituation.

Every year, specialists from all over the country participated in these educational endeavors. Learning and sharing became the rule which eventually shortened the learning curve of the participants. Thus the benefits of specialized services cascaded to huge, needy women patients far and wide across India.

The professional fraternity in India is quite large. Serving the growing health needs of 657 million (65.7 cores) women in India is a great challenge.

Updating the specialists about the recent advances by periodical conferences and workshops involving national and international Urogynecology experts is a short term rapid learning process addressed to a focused gathering of specialists. It is an attempt to "Bridge the gap between the care seekers and care providers" in our country.

Surgeons may be admired, praised and even adored for good results. But then, they are blamed more than any other specialty for bad results despite all the hard work.

By improving the methods existing and by devising better strategies to correct the complex problems, we can avoid repeated surgeries, reduce the morbidity and improve the quality of life of our patients

“Read one, See one and Do one” does not hold good for pelvic floor surgeries. Pelvic Surgeries need to be seen frequently and practiced regularly.
