Physicians at Associated Medical Professionals are well trained and can treat most forms of urinary incontinence both in men and women. Urinary incontinence can be signs of other significant medical issues including: neurologic disease, progressive dementia, anatomic abnormalities, and complications from previous gynecologic or urologic procedures, neurologic and urologic malignancies as well as other serious issues which need to be carefully evaluated. Evaluation typically includes urinalysis, possible urine cultures, complete urologic physical examination, possible cystoscopic examination, urodynamic testing to better evaluate bladder function and possible obstruction, neurologic evaluation and history.
Multiple treatment options include conservative measures such as Kegel exercises and biofeedback, as well as bladder training, medical management with multiple medications that are available for improving bladder control including pills and jells, implantable devices into the lower back which can better control bladder function including InterStim.
Surgical treatment options including bladder slings, intraurethral bulking agents including collagen, pelvic floor reconstruction including cystocele and rectocele repair, da Vinci robotic-assisted and laparoscopic techniques in order to improve incontinence.
Pelvic Floor Therapy is a conservative, non-surgical therapy used to treat incontinence, urgency, pelvic pain, or to re-educate the pelvic floor muscles to restore and maintain health. Using the pelvic floor therapy technology, a computer recorder monitors the strength of your pelvic muscles and your progress throughout the therapy. This computerized technology allows you to immediately see the results as you contract and relax the correct group of muscles according to a present pattern of exercises.
