Urogynecology and Incontinence Center
A one-stop diagnostic and treatment center for urine and bladder problems.
The Urogynecology and Incontinence Center provides diagnostic tests and treatment for the following conditions:
Urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine)
Overactive bladder (passing urine too frequently or frequently experiencing an urge to urinate)
Recurrent urinary tract infections
Voiding dysfunction (difficulty in passing urine)
Pelvic organ prolapse (lump protruding out of the vagina)
Other urinary symptoms, such as bed wetting, blood in the urine, pain when passing urine
Our diagnostic tests are conducted by urogynecologists and urologists.
Urinalysis tests for white blood cells, protein, sugar, and blood in the urine. A midstream urine sample is collected and analyzed, ideally with a full bladder.
Urine for culture and sensitivity tests for organisms that cause infections of the bladder.
Urogynecologic pelvic examination
Urology exam/Digital rectal exam
Cough test or stress test confirms any urinary leakage and quantifies the degree of urine loss. The patient, with a full bladder, will be asked to cough vigorously during a pelvic examination or while standing. This test is modified to suit the patient's age, mobility, and medical conditions.
Uroflowmetry is done at the end of the cough test, when the patient is asked to pass urine at a uroflow machine, which measures the amount and rate of flow of the urine
Urodynamics studies use a computer to determine the muscle activity of the bladder during filling and emptying.
- A fine tube is inserted into the bladder to fill the bladder with saline solution and record bladder pressure. A second tube will be inserted into the rectum to record abdominal pressure.
- The tubes are connected to a computer that monitors and records these pressures.
- The patient will be asked to indicate the first desire to pass urine, and to cough to demonstrate urinary incontinence.
- Uroflowmetry completes the test.
- The ultrasound scan of the bladder is used to measure residual urine volume.
- They are useful in cases when:
- There is a mixture of urinary symptoms
- An operation is being considered
- Previous treatment has not been successful
- The problem has recurred
- For post-operative assessment
