Stress Incontinence Treatment
Bladder leakage is not normal, and you do not have to live with it.
What is stress urinary incontinence?
SUI is when urine leaks out during moments of physical activity that increase abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise.
This condition is caused by a weakness of the pelvic floor muscles, which usually tends to happen as we get older, with pregnancy and with certain pelvic floor conditions.
- Are you concerned about having major surgery?
- Are you worried about using a mesh sling?
- Do you have leakage when you cough, sneeze, or laugh?
Bulkamid may be the answer for your incontinence relief!
Bulkamid is a urethral bulking agent that physicians use to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This is the preferred method for women suffering from SUI. There are many benefits to this treatment as opposed to others, including a mesh sling.
- Safe and Effective: 92 % of women report improved symptoms and relief following treatment.
- Simple Procedure: Bulkamid injections take place over 10-15 minutes in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.
- Long-lasting Relief: The procedure is clinically proven to deliver symptom relief for up to seven years.
- Designed for Comfort: It is a soft, water-based gel that can be used to restore the natural closing of the urethra.
