Atlantic General Health System’s women’s health professionals provide urodynamic testing to diagnose urinary incontinence, frequent urination and other issues related to the bladder. Most testing focuses on the bladder’s ability to empty, but it can also show whether the bladder is having abnormal contractions that cause leakage.
Once a diagnosis is made, our health care providers can determine if medication, physical therapy or surgical procedures such as the urethral sling may be best for you.

A urethral sling, composed of a synthetic material or even muscle, ligament or tendon tissues taken from the woman, can be placed around the urethra to support its normal position and exert pressure on the urethra so the bladder can retain urine.
The procedure is somewhat invasive, so a hospital admission would be required. To learn more about this option, contact one of Atlantic General Health System’s women’s health providers.
