Urofemme was founded by Dr. Isabelle Kaelin Gambirasio,
a surgeon in the field of gynecology and obstetrics, specialist in urogynecology, and graduate of the University of Geneva Faculty of Medicine.
She began her career studying urological and abdominal surgery at HUG (Geneva University Hospitals) for two years.
She then went on to complete her training in gynecology and obstetrics at Hôpital de Nyon, and joined the Geneva Maternity Hospital, first as an intern and then as chief resident. In 2010,
she became certified with the FMH (Swiss Medical Association) in gynecology and obstetrics and gained her surgical subspecialty, and then completed advanced training in urogynecology in 2017.
Having developed a special interest in pelvic floor conditions,
she completed training in urodynamics at St Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College London in 2010, followed by training in urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery (Drs. M. Walters and M. Karram) in Cincinnati in 2013, and a further specialty at the perineo-proctology unit led by Professor Roche at HUG.
She has been in private practice since 2014, and is an active board member and former president of the GRSSGO (Romand group of the Swiss society of gynecology and obstetrics), as well as being a member of the IUGA (International Urogynecological Association), the ICS (International Continence Society), the SSGG (Swiss society of gynecology and obstetrics), the AUG (Swiss urogynecological association), the AMGE (Association of doctors in the canton of Geneva), the FMH (Swiss Medical Association) and the OGOG (Order of gynecologists and obstetricians of Geneva).
