Advanced Screening and Treatment for Prostate Cancer
Women's Health Services
The doctors at Associated Urological Specialists are experts in treating multiple women’s health issues such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, and recurrent urinary tract infections. We also can offer treatment options for chronic pelvic pain syndromes like interstitial cystitis.
The primary symptoms of OAB include urinalysis frequency (having to go often), urinary urgency (having to go urgently), getting up multiple times at night to urinate, and urinary leakage when the urge to go is so strong that patients cannot make it to the bathroom in time.
There are two main types of urinary incontinence: Stress urinary incontinence, when straining from activities causes leakage of urine, and urge urinary incontinence, when the bladder has involuntary strong urges that the patient cannot control.
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is when straining from activities such as coughing, sneezing, lifting, and standing causes leakage of urine. Stress incontinence is caused by an anatomic problem and often requires surgical intervention to cure it.
PELVIC FLOOR PROLAPSE
Muscles and ligaments keep the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, and rectum) in place. Over time, these can stretch or tear, cause pelvic floor prolapse. This condition is common and treatable with a personalized plan from your doctor.
Find Relief for Kidney Stones
Kidney stone formation is often influenced by diet, fluid intake, heredity, and occasionally other medical problems. Our specialists can help determine the cause of your kidney stones and recommend treatment options.
Kidney stones or calculi are solid collections of normal urinary components which have precipitated out of the urine to form crystals. The majority of stones are calcium-based but there are several other types of stones which can also occur.
Many stones are able to pass all the way out of the urinary tract without any intervention. When stones are symptomatic in the ureter, medical expulsion therapy can be utilized.
