It is generally believed that urinary incontinence is a common symptom of aging and we just have to accept it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Urinary incontinence affects even thirty-year-old women, mainly those who have had a natural birth. It is believed that one in three women struggles with this problem. For most women, this is an extremely embarrassing problem, which is also confirmed by statistics.
If you have not dealt with your problem yet, now is the time. At Medicover Hospital we treat incontinence with the help of the following:
- Botox – the medicine used in the treatment of patients suffering from urinary incontinence resulting from overactive bladder. The treatment is performed once every 6-9 months. The urologist inserts an endoscope into the bladder, and then administers 20-30 injections into the bladder muscle. The treatment is not very invasive and is painless, although it can be performed under local anaesthesia.
- Urolastic – the preparation used to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. This outpatient procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes and does not require anaesthesia. After numbing the mucous membrane around the urethra, the substance is painlessly injected into the tissue on both sides of the mucous membrane along the urethra. Urolastic does not cause allergies and does not migrate, concentrating only at the injection site. It maintains its shape and flexibility and therefore its mechanical properties as a filling substance. If necessary, it can be removed as it does not bond to tissues.
- Laser correction - this procedure consists of photothermic shrinkage of the vaginal walls, which strengthens them, as well as the sub-urethral area. This helps restore bladder control and the feeling of comfort during physical exertion.
80% of patients experience full satisfaction, while in 20% it may be necessary to repeat the procedure.
All procedures are simple and minimally invasive. Patients may leave the hospital on the same day after surgery and resume daily activities. If you are struggling with urinary incontinence, make an appointment with a doctor. Together you will find the best solution to your problem.
