Millions of women experience involuntary loss of urine, commonly known as urinary incontinence (UI), or complain of lose (relax) pelvic muscle.The cause of both complaints is the gradual weakness of genital urinary muscles and its nerves which are needed to help to hold or release urine. Symptoms of weak pelvic muscle or UI can be slightly bothersome or totally debilitating, keeping some women from enjoying many activities with their family and friends. Urine loss can also occur during sexual activity and cause tremendous emotional distress.
Medication, bio-feed back, supervised pelvic therapy and surgical procedures are options to help alleviate UI. After appropriate testing and correct diagnosis a treatment will be chosen for you.
Dr. Simhaee is one of the few physicians who treats most of his female patients with an in office none surgical therapy. He tries to avoid prescribing medications to his patients because of the side effects that they have. The side effects include dryness of mouth, constipation, blurred vision, amongst others. Surgical corrections are the last resort and are recommended for patients who have anatomical abnormality and are not responding to supervised treatment.
Dr. Simhaee uses electrical stimulation to manage urinary urgency, and he has a special program which provides you with your own private trainer to help you strengthen your pelvic muscles in the comfort of your own home.
