Urinary Incontinence Treatment Options

If you suffer from urinary incontinence, there are a number of urinary treatment options available today that can help you return to a normal lifestyle. Depending on the cause of your incontinence, there are surgery and drug options available, but there are also non-invasive treatments and lifestyle changes that are proven to work just as effectively. It’s typical to see that a combination of treatments may be needed to fully treat your bladder incontinence.

The urinary incontinence doctors with the Incontinence Institute offer a variety of treatment options designed to help you start living a better life. Explore all of the incontinence care options that we offer below and click on the links for more details.

  • Botox
    Injected into the bladder muscle by a specialized instrument called a cystoscope. The procedure takes 15 minutes or less and can be done under a general anesthesia, or on an outpatient basis so you don’t have to be admitted to a hospital.
  • Sacral Nerve Stimulation
    Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) or sacral neuromodulation (SNM) devices work by helping the brain communicate normally with the bladder or bowel to prevent certain types of incontinence. Designed to help you improve bladder and/or bowel control, a small device is implanted using a minimally invasive procedure that typically lasts about one hour.
  • Artificial Urinary Sphincter
    An artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) is a medical device used to control the muscles responsible for urine storage. An AUS is a common solution for those suffering from moderate to severe urinary incontinence, especially those experiencing incontinence following prostate surgery.
  • Medication
    Medication for urinary incontinence treatment can include oral medications, patches, or creams. Common medications that a doctor will prescribe include Anticholinergics, Estrogen, Imipramine, and Desmopressin.Our doctors will pinpoint the source of your urinary incontinence to better understand your condition and prescribe the most effective medication for you.
  • Physical Therapy & Biofeedback
    Generally used alongside other treatment options, physical therapy is a painless treatment method that can help strengthen weak muscles and damaged nerves that are causing incontinence.Biofeedback, also a painless treatment method, allows you to receive on-the-spot feedback about a specific function in your body. Biofeedback is often used if you have pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, urgency or frequent urination, difficulty emptying the bladder, or pelvic pain.
  • Urethral Sling
    Typically used to treat stress incontinence, bladder slings/urethral slings treat urinary incontinence in both men and women. Urethral sling surgeries are designed to treat urinary incontinence by placing a sling around the urethra to lift it back into a normal position and to apply pressure on the urethra to assist with urine retention.
