How your urologist treats your frequent urination depends on what’s causing it. Your urologist might suggest:
Urology Associates of Southeastern North Carolina provides Botox to treat frequent urination. Your urologist simply injects Botox into your bladder muscles about every six months to target the specific source of overactive bladder.
Botox is made from the neurotoxin botulinum toxin. It’s completely safe and beneficial in minor controlled doses. Botox helps block the nerve signals that trigger an overactive bladder.
InterStim therapy is a reversible therapy involving an implantable device that sends mild electrical pulses to your sacral nerves to help with bladder control. Your sacral nerves are located near your tailbone and they control your bladder and the muscles related to urinary function.
