Roughly 33 million Americans have an overactive bladder (OAB). Three out of 10 women and four out of 10 men suffer from overactive bladder symptoms disrupting their everyday lives. Many people don’t seek medical assistance because they are embarrassed or afraid of the treatment options.
Call us at 478-745-6576 to set up an appointment about your OAB.
There are multiple treatments for OAB that do not require anesthesia or surgery. Don’t settle for an uncomfortable life when treatment for your overactive bladder is a phone call away.
Overactive Bladder Symptoms
Symptoms of an overactive bladder become more noticeable as you age. However, it shouldn’t be considered normal or necessary! The experts at Urology Specialists of Georgia can help you create a treatment plan for OAB and get your life back in a normal, comfortable routine—undisturbed by frequent trips to the bathroom.
If you are unsure if you have OAB, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I wake up two or more times in the night and have to urinate?
- Do I urinate frequently (roughly every three hours)?
- Do I experience urge incontinence?
Available Treatments for OAB
Thankfully, the USGA medical experts are knowledgeable and experienced with all types of OAB treatments. There is no need for your symptoms to continue disrupting your work schedule, social interactions, and everyday activities.
Consider these three treatments for OAB:
- Behavioral modifications are an effective way to treat OAB. If this doesn’t relieve your symptoms, medication may be necessary.
- InterStim is an option for people who tried other treatments, such as medication or behavioral therapy, which were unsuccessful.
- Botox is a prescription medicine injected directly into the bladder muscle to relax the bladder and treat overactive bladder symptoms.
