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, 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.
There are several medications available to help relax the muscles in the bladder. Oral medications can be prescribed or BOTOX® injections may also help.
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.
This sacral neuromodulation therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves controlling the bladder and bowel to improve bladder control and reduce symptoms of OAB.
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.
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
