Incontinence and Urinary Issues

Many women experience urinary conditions and disorders, which can cause problems with your urinary tract and bladder health.

Female Urinary Incontinence

This is actually a common issue for women more than men and can cause leaky bladders and overwhelming urges to urinate or false alarms.

Stress Urinary Incontinence generally occurs when your pelvic muscles are no longer strong enough to keep the opening from the bladder neck closed when you are under physical stress.

Urinary Tract Infection​

A Urinary tract infection, or a UTI, is an infection in the urinary system that is typically found in the bladder. Urinary tract infections are more often found in women than men.

Bladder Prolapse

Instances in which the bladder bulges out of place are known as bladder prolapse.

Urge Incontinence

Women have unexpected an urgent need to urinate over 8 times per day and may also have a leaky bladder.

Frequent Urination

Many individuals can experience frequent urges to urinate. This sensation may be quite brief, or it can be a recurring issue that signals a more complex medical condition or disorder.

Botox targets the source of OAB by going directly to the muscles of the bladder and helping to block the signals that trigger OAB.

Pelvic Health & Women’s Health Concerns

Women who experience daily struggles due to their fibroid symptoms are encouraged to seek treatment because these symptoms will likely only worsen as the fibroid(s) continue to grow even larger over time.

Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy includes symptoms of vaginal dryness, inflammation, and general discomfort of the genital region due to thinning tissues within the vaginal wall.

Hormone Optimization Therapy

Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Due to their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
Fecal incontinence refers to problems associated with bowel control, specifically the inability to restrict a bowel movement before reaching a restroom.

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when muscles and ligaments in the pelvic floor are stretched or become too weak to hold the organs in the pelvis in their proper place.

Surgical Procedures for Gynecology

A vaginal hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus and cervix through the vagina.  There are no abdominal incisions which means no visible scars.  It is the least invasive way to have a hysterectomy and is associated with fewer complications than abdominal or laparoscopic hysterectomy. 

A Hyst ‘N Tuck is a procedure that combines a hysterectomy to remove the uterus with a tummy tuck to flatten your abdominal area and get rid of excess skin. 

A pelvic organ prolapse is a condition that occurs when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weakened or damaged, often due to childbirth.
