BOTOX TREATMENTS FOR OVERACTIVE BLADDER. EXCLUSIVELY FROM EXECUTIVE UROLOGY SPECIALISTS.
If your OAB medication hasn't worked and surgery is not an option you'd like to consider, there is another care approach that is effective, safe and long-lasting.
Botox is a prescription medication that blocks the nerve impulses that trigger Overactive Bladder (OAB). A treatment takes about 30 minutes and is currently performed in the Sandusky office of Executive Urology Specialists by urologist Patrick Waters, MD.
The treatment is the only one of its kind available in north central Ohio. One injection typically prevents OAB symptoms for about six months, and treatments can occur as often as every three months. Dr. Waters has been a practicing urologist since 1998. He is part of team of comprehensive urologic specialists that has served north central Ohio patients for more than three decades.
CALM YOUR BLADDER. IMPROVE YOUR LIFE.
How a Botox treatment for Overactive Bladder works:
You are given an antibiotic to take prior to your treatment to help prevent infection.
At your office appointment with Dr. Waters, you are given a numbing agent, possibly in combination with a sedative.
Once the bladder is numb, a cystoscope is inserted through the urethra.
Botox, introduced via needle through the cystoscope, is injected into multiple areas of the bladder muscle.
A Botox treatment typically takes about 30 minutes. Once completed, you are observed for an additional 30 minutes, and you will need to empty your bladder before leaving the office.
REAL RESULTS. IN A FEW SHORT WEEKS.
Patients typically show improvement in their Overactive Bladder symptoms as soon as two weeks following treatment. Six weeks after treatment, patients have experienced:
- Over 20 fewer leakage episodes per week.
- Increased bladder capacity.
- Decreased pressure in the bladder.
