Abstract

Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, or urogynecology, has undergone a unique evolution with recent recognition as a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Urology. It has never suffered from a shortage of innovation nor of innovators, and thus new treatments and therapeutic options are regularly being introduced. Who is best to perform or prescribe new, therapeutic options and their implementation in a responsible manner is controversial. In this chapter, we will review skill acquisition, credentialing, and the maintenance of skills in surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence.
