Wayne Health’s board-certified urologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of bladder conditions. Our academic connection with the Wayne State University School of Medicine allows us to offer the latest technologies, treatments and research breakthroughs to patients.
Bladder conditions are medical problems that are difficult to talk about but can have a dramatic impact on your life. They are also very common. Urinary incontinence, the inability to control the release of urine from your bladder, affects more than 13 million Americans. Women are twice as likely as men to experience urinary incontinence, and it is especially common in older people.
We will work with you to determine the cause of your bladder pain or leakage and to find a treatment plan that works for you, ranging from medication, to surgery, physical therapy or lifestyle changes.
Diagnosis of a bladder condition begins with a complete physical examination that focuses on the urinary and nervous systems and reproductive organs. You will be asked to provide a urine sample.
Urinary incontinence can be related to certain diseases, medications or other medical conditions. So, a thorough evaluation is needed for an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan.
We offer a full range of urodynamic testing, the latest imaging studies and, should surgery be required, we have expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgical approaches.
Wayne Health physicians and researchers are also faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic research and clinical studies. This can make the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other health care providers without a medical school affiliation.
