OVERACTIVE BLADDER (INCONTINENCE)
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine, ranging from an occasional few drops to a complete or continuous loss of urine. It can occur at any age and can be caused by many physical conditions, weak muscles, injury and nerve damage, surgery, medication, and, in women, childbirth and menopause.
Our urologists will look for underlying conditions of incontinence and causes before recommending the proper treatment which can include physical therapy, neuromodulation, medications or surgery.
IN-OFFICE CONTINENCE THERAPIES
In an effort to treat patients comprehensively and to offer non-surgical options for incontinence, we offer a variety of in-office continence therapies and treatment options. The benefit of using our in-office therapies is personalized patient care, less out-of-pocket expense for the patient, a comfortable office environment, and performed by excellently trained, caring technicians and Physicians Assistants.

PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE
Arizona Institute of Urology is experienced and highly skilled to address the full spectrum of women's urological health concerns such as pelvic organ prolapse which occurs when the muscles at the base of the pelvis, that hold the pelvis organs in place, weaken and the organs move and push against the vagina causing discomfort.
Treatment options include surgery, hormone replacement therapy, Kegel exercises and biofeedback.
INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS (IC)
Interstitial Cystitis (also known as painful bladder syndrome or bladder pain syndrome) is an inflammatory condition of the bladder with symptoms that vary by patient. It is often misdiagnosed as an over-active bladder. Correct diagnosis is critical to treatment of this complex condition.
