Clinic Gynecology & Obstetrics
Careful evaluation of pelvic floor disorders in women for incontinence, uterine, bladder, bowel prolapse, bladder emptying problems, urinary tract infections, blood in the urine, bladder pain, etc.
Measurement of bladder and urethra function with special pressure sensors, ultrasound of the pelvic floor, cystoscopy, electromyography to study the activity of the pelvic floor muscles.
Individual treatment strategies
Conservative therapies can often already help alleviate the condition. If these do not reach the hoped for results, modern surgical techniques are available to treat pelvic floor disorders.
Drinking and bladder training
Targeted bladder training and optimization of drinking behavior can help significantly with complaints such as irritable bladder, urge incontinence or cystitis.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy
Targeted training of the pelvic floor muscles under guidance, e.g. with electrostimulation and biofeedback, can alleviate pelvic floor complaints.
Such as local hormone treatments for incontinence associated with menopause or pharmacotherapy for overactive bladder.
Sometimes so-called pessaries, devices that are inserted into the vagina, can provide relief from problems of descent and incontinence.
For overactive bladder, bladder voiding dysfunction or bladder pain, e.g. percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (pTNS).
Bladder instillation treatments
Insertion of highly effective drugs into the bladder for overactive bladder and/or chronic urinary tract infections, e.g., electromotive drug administration (EMDA).
Use in different situations. For bladder emptying problems, e.g. intermittent self-catheterization (ISK) for urination.
Modern surgical techniques such as retropubic slings (e.g., TVT), bulking agents e.g., Bulkamid, botox injections into the bladder, colposuspension.
"Classic" vaginal techniques with autologous tissue padding, vaginal mesh inserts, laparoscopic techniques such as sacrocolpopexy.
