About Prof Bernard Haylen
Prof Bernard Haylen is an Urogynaecologist in Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia.
Urogynaecology involves treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary or faecal incontinence (leakage of urine or faeces) and prolapse (bulging, sagging or falling) of the vagina, bladder and/or the uterus (womb). Urinary incontinence is a very common condition affecting at least 10–20 per cent of women under age 65 and over half of women over the age of 65. Prolapse can occur quickly, but usually happens over the course of many years. Prolapse and incontinence frequently occur together.
