Problems with the bladder and the urinary tract can be painful, embarrassing, and affect quality of life. Dr. Jerry Greenberg can diagnose and treat many common conditions that affect the bladder and proper urinary function including urinary infections, urinary incontinence, and voiding problems in women and men.
Bladder dysfunction, also known as voiding dysfunction, refers to the improper emptying of the bladder. Bladder dysfunction may be a symptom of another condition, and determining the underlying cause is crucial in creating an optimal treatment plan.
Treatments for bladder dysfunction can include medication, injectables, behavior or psychological interventions, neuromodulation, or in some cases, surgery. Dr. Greenberg offers many treatments in our office to treat a wide variety of causes of bladder dysfunction.
Infections of the bladder (aka cystitis or UTI), kidney and urethra are all types of urinary infections and occur when bad bacteria gets into the bladder or kidneys and causes an infection. Sometimes these infections clear on their own, and if not, they can be treated by medication.
Symptoms for urinary infections include:
- Pain, burning or feeling of urgency when urinating
- The feeling of having to urinate, but little or nothing comes out
- Foul-smelling urine
- Bloody or cloudy urine
Some over-the-counter medications treat UTIs and other common urinary infections, but in certain cases you should contact your doctor. If you’ve got any of the symptoms listed above, and you’re pregnant, have kidney problems, or are over 65, call us today at 520-202-3606“>520-202-3606 to schedule an appointment.
Incontinence, or leaking of urine, has a variety of causes, from UTIs to pregnancy to prostate cancer. Dr. Greenberg offers patients suffering moderate to severe urinary incontinence urodynamic testing to determine the cause so we can better make a plan for effective treatment.
We also offer in-office treatments for urinary incontinence. Incontinence caused by overactive bladder (OAB) can be treated with injections of Botox, which helps relax the muscles of the bladder. We have also successfully treated patients with neuromodulation. A small device implanted under the skin, like a pacemaker, uses electrical stimulation to control the muscles of the bladder. Neuromodulation is appropriate treatment for certain underlying causes of urinary incontinence and has been shown to be effective and safe.
