Bladder Control

When you have Overactive Bladder (OAB) or stress incontinence, you learn to settle. To settle not only for the constant bathroom trips and interrupted sleep, but also for treatments that haven't worked as well as you'd like or left you with unpleasant side effects.  Many people just learn to cope with their condition, rather than talk to their healthcare provider about it, because they are embarrassed or think it can’t be treated.   But there are many safe and effective treatments, such as: 

→ Lifestyle Changes, including weight loss, and suggested elimination of alcohol, coffee, tea and carbonated beverages
→ Bladder Training
→ Pelvic Muscle Exercises (or Kegels)
→ Biofeedback
→ PTNS (Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation) Treatments
→ Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy (PTNM)
→ Treatment for Stress Incontinence 


PTNS

This in-office treatment offers a non-invasive, non-surgical, non-drug treatment for patients.  Bladder function is a complex  interaction between bladder, brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.  PTNS uses mild electrical impulses that travel up the tibial nerve to the sacral nerve.  Stimulating these nerves quiets the overactive bladder, reducing inappropriate bladder contractions and the number of signals sent to the brain.  This results in less frequency, urgency and urge incontinence. 

PTNS works gently and slowly to improve bladder symptoms through a series of weekly 30-minute treatments.  Up to 80% of patients see significant improvement in their symptoms.  PTNS delivers remarkable results with reduced risk. 

With few contraindications, contact us to see if PTNS is right for you.


Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy (PTNM)

PTNM is a safe an effective OAB treament that is clinically proven to restore bladder function.  It provides lasting relief with maintenance therapy and does not have the side effects of medication.  If you’ve tried OAB treatments and haven’t been happy with the results, don’t give up. These treatments may not have addressed the miscommunication between the brain and bladder that is thought to be linked to OAB.

PTNM restores bladder function by gently stimulating the tibial nerve. It is delivered through the NURO system at Dr. Cagnes' office through a series of weekly 30-minute sessions.  The NURO System delivers therapy through an acupuncture-like needle placed in the skin near your ankle. The sensation is not painful, although you may feel a slight tingling in your heel.

You'll be free to read, listen to music, or catch up on email during the therapy session!

SLING: Treatment for Stress Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is an involuntary loss of urine during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise.  About 1 our of every 3 women experience urinary leakage at some time in their lives.  This affects one-third of women age 30 to age 60 and one-third of women under the age of 30.

SLING is a small strip or "sling" of a very soft and flexible synthetic material.  A SLING becomes integrated in your tissues and forms a "hammock of support"  under your urethra (tube where one urinates through) to support it when necessary.  SLING has been developed by biomedical engineers and clinical researchers to be compatible with your tissues.
