Ortonville, MI (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Urinary incontinence (UI), the unwanted leakage of urine, and dyspareunia, pain sexual intercourse, are often symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women. Pelvic organ prolapse is easily identified and diagnosed on physical examination and a recent history of symptoms. There are a variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures to permanently correct POP and alleviate symptoms of UI and dyspareunia. Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control offers consultations with our specialists to identify, diagnose, and treat POP.
Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control is different than a typical urology clinic that services both men and women; they serve the special urinary concerns of women only. Most general urology specialists are not trained to correct POP and therefore women seeking treatment from a general urology clinic may be underserved and not experience satisfactory resolution of their problem. According to Debbie Henry, NP-C, nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, “We treat women only and we know that POP is often at the core of most women’s urinary control problems. Therefore, we seek to diagnose and treat POP first before moving on to other procedures and treatments. It just makes sense to correct the anatomy first.”
Minimally invasive procedures to correct POP may or may not require complete removal of the uterus. There are also minimally invasive procedures correct cystocele (prolapsed bladder), rectocele (prolapsed rectum), and vaginal vault prolapse (prolapse of vagina after hysterectomy) available. Some procedures are limited to the urethra itself. Urethral procedures help stabilize the urethra and allow for greater sphincter control resulting in less leaking with activity or at rest. Dr. Jonathan Zaidan MD is one of the urogynecology specialists at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control and is trained and practiced in just about every type of minimally invasive procedure to correct POP available today. Dr. Zaidan stated, “Women want their problem diagnosed and treated effectively and efficiently and that is exactly what we do here at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control. These minimally invasive procedures are done with often no hospital stay required and patients recover in days versus weeks. Most patients are very pleased with their results.”
