The TOT Sling and Burch procedures are great for patients who cannot tolerate overactive bladder medications and those patients who have not had satisfactory results from pelvic floor exercises
Oakland County, MI (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
It’s a problem most women would rather not talk about – Urinary Incontinence (UI), the unwanted leakage of urine from the bladder. The problem itself is as common as the commercials on television for urinary incontinence pads or overactive bladder medication. Women are told to do their Kegel exercises to help the condition, but if not done regularly and properly, they do little to solve the problem.
Fortunately, thanks to interested and talented physicians like Dr. Jonathan Zaidan MD of Women's Excellence in Bladder Control (WEBC), women now have options that could rid them of UI for good, or at the very least, make their problem less of a problem. Outpatient procedures such as the Transobturator (TOT) Sling procedure and the Burch Urethropexy are providing control of UI without medications and eliminating the need for pads. These procedures are minimally-invasive, which means a hospital stay is not required and recovery is quick. According to Dr. Zaidan, “The TOT and Burch procedures are great for patients who cannot tolerate or afford overactive bladder medications and those patients who have not had satisfactory results from pelvic floor exercises".
Medtronic InterStim Therapy for Urinary Control is another option available at Women's Excellence in Bladder Control. This therapy is also minimally-invasive and works by controlling urinary incontinence via neuromodulation, helping the messages from the brain get to the bladder to control the bladder appropriately. There is a simple office test that is performed before proceeding to the permanent therapy. “Medtronic InterStim is the latest technology in controlling the bladder. The procedure is simple to perform, the patients experience almost no down time, and the results have been life-changing for these patients. We are very pleased to offer it”, stated Dr. Zaidan.
