Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) can have a variety of causes, such as pregnancy, diabetes, neurologic diseases which may weaken the pelvic floor muscles and cause involuntary leakage of urine. Some even stop exercising to avoid this embarrassment with produces undesired results like weight gain, further loss of muscle tone and becoming out of shape. However, SUI can be easily repaired with an outpatient surgery called mid-urethral sling placement (also called a "Bladder Sling"). The procedure takes only 15 minutes, produces excellent results, with minimal complications and a short recovery time. Other treatment options for SUI include pelvic floor physical therapy, Kegel’s Exercises, and nonsurgical support of the bladder provided by inserting pessaries. Additionally, bladder neck bulking agents (botox, collagen injections) are available through urologists affiliated with the local hospital.

 

Urgency Treatment

Another cause of loosing urine is urgency related. In this case, patients frequently do not have enough time to make it to the bathroom when they feel the urge to urinate. This is a curable condition with medications and dietary change. There is no reason to live a compromised life because you are not seeking help to stop urine leakage. We offer many medications to fit your needs and budget.

 

Pelvic Organ Prolapse Treatment

Another problem related to weakened pelvic floor muscles is Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). This condition, in which the inner organs prolapse outward, can result after a high number of pregnancies. We reposition the organs in their proper place and use either the patient's own tissue or a mesh tissue to stabilize them.

 

Experience, Skill, Success

Choosing the right procedure according to each patient's need is the key to success, along with the help of an experienced skilled surgeon. We have had thousands of happy patients with successful outcomes and minimal complication rates.
