In the first instance, it's important to treat any underlying health problems like constipation and bladder stones that might be causing your urinary incontinence. The Lenox OBGYN team also provides a range of treatments to help resolve urinary incontinence. Treatments available include:
- Bladder training
- Physical therapy
- Bladder support devices
- Mirabegron medication
- Botox® injections
- Urethral bulking
- Vaginal rejuvenation
- Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation
If these treatments aren't improving your urinary incontinence, the Lenox OBGYN team can perform surgery. One option is sacral neuromodulation, which uses an implanted device to send signals to the nerve controlling bladder function.
Another surgical option is colposuspension, where your surgeon lifts your urethra and holds it in place with stitches near the neck of your bladder. An alternative is to implant a synthetic sling or create a sling from your bodily tissues that raises and supports the urethra.
You don't have to put up with the embarrassment and inconvenience of urinary incontinence. Call Lenox OBGYN to schedule a consultation or book online today.
