Uterine Prolapse & Stress Urinary Incontinence

Home Uterine Prolapse & Stress Urinary Incontinence

One of the many bodily functions we take for granted is our ability to control urination. This essential function is the result of a perfect arrangement of the pelvic organs and nerve control of these organs.

 

This arrangement may be altered by childbirth (particularly vaginal delivery), obesity, aging, injury and chronic straining from constipation. Any one of these may lead to the weakening of the muscles surrounding the vagina and pelvic organs, and in mild cases results in the inability to control urination with leakage of urine while coughing(stress incontinence) or inability to hold urine leading to urgency of urination.

 

More severe weakening of these vaginal/pelvic muscles can result in prolapse of pelvic organs and patients can actually feel and see their uterus(womb) protruding and hanging out of their vagina.

 

The physicians at NOVA Surgery Center use ultramodern diagnostics to identify the extent of these conditions. Most cases of stress incontinence and urinary urgency can be managed with biofeed back, medical and physical therapy.

 

Mild cases of uterine prolapse can be treated medically but severe cases of uterine prolapse and stress incontinencethat do not respond to medical therapy can be treated with minimally invasive surgical procedures.
