Cutting-edge Treatment for Overactive Bladder
Lake Regional Urology now offers Urgent® PC Neuromodulation, a non-surgical treatment for overactive bladder. Symptoms of overactive bladder include urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence. The office-based treatment is effective in both men and women, regardless of age, and is low-risk, with few contraindications and no severe adverse events. No medication is required.
Urgent® PC improves bladder function through stimulating a group of nerves called the sacral nerve plexus at the base of the spine. A small, slim needle electrode is inserted near the patient’s ankle. The needle electrode is then connected to a battery-powered stimulator. After turning on the stimulator, a Lake Regional Urology provider — either Bradley Connett, M.D., or Kathy Walters, FNP-BC, CUNP — observes the body’s response to determine the ideal strength of the impulses.
Each treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Patients receive an initial series of 12 treatments, typically scheduled a week apart. After the initial 12 treatments, a Lake Regional Urology provider determines how often future treatments are needed to maintain results. The treatment is covered by Medicare and many other insurers.
Urodynamics is a group of tests that allows us to look at how your lower urinary tract works. Sometimes a physical exam and basic urine tests do not clearly identify the source of the problem. Urodynamics helps identify specific problems related to:
· Controlling your urine
· Not emptying your bladder completely
· Feeling of frequent and/or urgent need to urinate
· Weak or intermittent (stopping and starting) urine flow
· Frequent urinary tract infections
