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.
Schedule an appointment with one of the women’s health providers
at our Berlin, Ocean Pines or Pocomoke location today.
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.
