Urodynamics


The Pelvic Floor Center provides diagnosis, consultation and innovative care options for:

· Fecal and urinary incontinence
· Urinary retention and other voiding dysfunctions
· Chronic constipation
· Pelvic organ prolapse
· Rectal cancer

Although most of these disorders are not life threatening, these health issues affect a broad range of patients and can have a devastating effect on quality of life. 

We offer the following urodynamic services:

Urodynamics/Video Urodynamics – Bladder testing used to assess causes of urinary problems including incontinence, urgency and difficulty emptying. May be done with or without fluoroscopy.

PNE (Peripheral Nerve Evaluation) - Determines whether sacral nerve stimulation for the control of lower urinary tract dysfunction is appropriate for a given patient. A temporary device is used and, if successful, surgery to implant a permanent device would be the next option. 

Biofeedback - (Pelvic Floor Muscle retraining) – can treat incontinence (fecal and urinary) as well as constipation caused by non-relaxation of the pelvic floor.  Sensors are used while a nurse coaches the patient to correctly exercise and relax the pelvic floor muscles.  Learn more.
