Welcome to the SUFU Center of Excellence

The Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU) Center of Excellence in collaboration with UroToday has been developed to engage providers on issues in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS), urinary incontinence, neurogenic bladder, and complex voiding disorders.  

Our first focus will be on overactive bladder (OAB) and use the SUFU OAB clinical care pathway (CCP) when treating overactive bladder. We determined some time ago that there was not a standardized OAB clinical care pathway. There are variations in the offerings of OAB treatments across practices. We developed an evidence-based expert consensus SUFU OAB Clinical Care Pathway. Our objectives have been to functionalize the AUA/SUFU OAB Guidelines that are evidence-based and flexible when no evidence is available. It has been established to provide guidance on multiple lines of therapy, beginning with the first line and simulates a navigator for practices of all types. This is an extension of the educational component that offers unbiased descriptions of the OAB therapies being offered
