What Is An Overactive Bladder?

Overactive bladder (OAB) occurs when the muscles of the bladder contract involuntarily, creating the need to urinate, even though your bladder may not be full. There are many underlying conditions that may contribute to an OAB, such as neurological disorders, menopause, and bladder stones. An OAB can be a major inconvenience and presents challenges at all hours of the day, such as the frequent or urgent need to urinate and bladder discomfort. Dr. Shenelle Wilson at Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center offers treatment for patients suffering from this form of urinary incontinence. Contact our Kennesaw, GA office today to learn how you can improve your bladder function and stop OAB from disrupting your life.

What Are Treatments for An Overactive Bladder?

For relief from OAB, lifestyle changes may be necessary and a combination of treatments may be the most effective approach. We offer the following treatment options:

Behavioral Therapies

Behavioral therapies, such as Kegal exercises and bladder training, focus on strengthening and gaining better control over the pelvic floor muscles to assist with managing the involuntary contractions of your OAB.

Prescription Medications

There are several medications available to help relax the muscles in the bladder. Oral medications can be prescribed or BOTOX® injections may also help.

InterStim®

Dr. Wilson proudly offers sacral nerve stimulation therapy, also known as InterStim. To help control bladder function, InterStim is a device inserted near the pelvic area that transmits electrical pulses to the sacral nerves, stimulating the nerves in the lower back and reducing OAB symptoms.

Axonics® Therapy

This sacral neuromodulation therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves controlling the bladder and bowel to improve bladder control and reduce symptoms of OAB.

Surgery

If other minimally invasive treatment options aren't effective, we can increase your bladder capacity or remove a part of your bladder. This surgery is usually only recommended for patients with extreme overactive bladder.

It took me 72 years & 11 surgeries to FINALLY find a GREAT DOCTOR & SURGEON!! I thought my guts were falling out! She fit me in as a new patient immediately with an emergency situation. She was thorough, gentle, concerning & answered all my questions so that I understood. She’s warm, friendly & caring. Like a friend! She gave me options . I made my decision. I needed a Pelvic Prolapse. She returns my texts quickly!!!! Never had a Dr do that! She has a wonderful staff… Isabella & Brian. Just a wonderful experience during a scary time. Thank You isn’t enough❤️
