Idealized Integrated Pelvic Care 

Wednesday evening 30th and Thursday 31st of March, 2022


We are pleased to invite you to attend the Symposium:

‘Idealized Integrated Pelvic Care’ and the workshop ‘3 D Anatomy: Functional and dynamic anatomy of the pelvic floor’.


These two dates focus on the ideal approach to integral care for the bladder and pelvic floor dysfunctions in a unique way. Besides anatomy and neurophysiology of the pelvic floor, the pathophysiology of a number of important pelvic floor and bladder dysfunctions, the symposium also pays attention to the interaction between the relevant (para)medical disciplines.

During the workshop on Wednesday evening, the bladder and pelvic floor will be discussed in all age phases. On this evening you will get to work practically and at the end of the evening you will have three-dimensional insight into the (functional) anatomy of the pelvic floor.
