What Is Neurogenic Bladder?
Neurogenic bladder is a disorder that occurs when damage in the nervous system hinders your bladder from functioning properly. Muscles and nerves work together to control when the bladder empties so if you have nerve damage, the muscles may not be able to contract or relax at the right time. There are many injuries and illnesses that can lead to neurogenic bladder, including spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and spina bifida. Dr. Shenelle Wilson can effectively diagnose and treat neurogenic bladder at Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center. If you have frequent urination, urine leaks, or trouble emptying out your bladder, contact our Kennesaw, GA office to determine if you have a neurogenic bladder.

Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
She's about the most personable, nicest, caring, down to earth doctor I have ever met in any medical field. I love her to pieces. I want to invite her over for dinner. -Wanda Massey
