1. Urinary Incontinence
Incontinence is common in both male and females, and affects over 18 million adults! Incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine, and may be a sign of erectile dysfunction. Men and women experience different types of incontinence including:
- Intrinsic Sphincter
- Overflow Incontinence
- Pelvic Prolapse
- Stress Incontinence
- Total Incontinence
- Urge Incontinence
Thankfully, there are treatments that your urology specialist can provide. These treatments range from behavioral modification, physical therapy, medication, and minimally-invasive surgery.
2. Erectile Dysfunction
If you are having trouble maintaining an erection that is firm or lasts long enough to engage in sexual intercourse, you may suffer from erectile dysfunction. One out of two men over the age of 40 have erectile dysfunction. Causes of this dysfunction include:
- Cardiovascular Problems
- Hormone Problems
- Spinal Cord Injury
We are able to effectively treat erectile dysfunction through the use of medications, devices, therapy, surgery, and implants.
3. Severe Side or Abdominal Pain
Severe side or abdominal pain is a sign that something isn’t right internally. Some people experience this sharp pain in their back or side areas of their body if they are suffering from a kidney stone. Kidney stones are actually crystals made up of chemicals that aren’t able to be dissolved. Even small stones are painful and can damage the kidney if allowed to grow large.
The Urology Specialists of Georgia team recommends certain treatments for kidney stones: lithotripsy, stents, ureteroscopy, and diet changes.
