Professor Hans Peter Dietz is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and RANZCOG-certified subspecialist in Urogynaecology, working in Sydney. He is an internationally renowned expert in pelvic floor imaging. His work is of fundamental importance as a substantial proportion of women delivering their first child vaginally suffer extensive damage to pelvic floor structures, which can result in pelvic organ prolapse and/or urinary or fecal incontinence, often many years after childbirth, which can be extremely distressing. He has developed non-invasive imaging techniques for the evaluation of women with prolapse, obstructed defecation and fecal incontinence. His group has been the first to diagnose and to attempt the repair of levator trauma during labour.
