Non-Invasive Office Procedure
While surgery is considered one of the most effective treatments for urinary incontinence, there are other treatments available that don’t require surgery. Many of these procedures can be performed in the physician’s office under local anesthesia.
- Renessa procedure – a non-surgical treatment for stress incontinence, in which radiofrequency energy aimed at the lower urinary tract creates firmer, more resistance tissue that helps prevent the leakage of urine
- Periurethral injections (Macroplastique uroplasty) – an injectable bulking gel that allows the urethra to close more effectively and prevent the leakage of urine
- InterStim percutaneous test – a trial procedure that is always performed prior to the implantation of the permanent InterStim system. InterStim is an experimental incontinence treatment that consists of a small, surgically implanted device that sends small electrical pulses to the nerves that control the bladder and surrounding muscles
