Your urogynecologist in the Lake Forest area provides several non-surgical treatment options
Pelvic health is an important part of a woman’s general sense of wellbeing. Dr. Gandhi of Partners in Pelvic Health North Shore Urogynecology has helped many women address unique health concerns with personalized care. Our team believes that gynecological concerns should not stop you from living a healthy, active life. We provide thorough evaluation and accurate diagnosis of a variety of pelvic conditions, as well as solutions, both surgical and non-surgical, for several. When possible, Dr. Gandhi recommends non-surgical treatment options such as:
- Botox injections. Women with an overactive bladder may find a great deal of relief from injections of this medication, which has been used for decades in medical applications. Botox minimizes the contractions of treated muscles, thus reducing their activity.
- Bladder instillations may be used as a non-surgical treatment for interstitial cystitis, bladder and/or urethral discomfort, pain and inflammation. Bladder instillations cleanse the bladder and minimize the symptoms of this condition.
- Kegel exercises have long been recommended as a home remedy for weak pelvic muscles. These exercises can be very effective when performed correctly. Our team can provide education and even assistance via stimulation devices to aid in the goal of proper performance of Kegels.
- Electrical stimulation is another option for the non-surgical treatment of weak pelvic muscles.
- Tibial nerve stimulation is a treatment used to treat detrusor or overactive bladder. This treatment involves the stimulation of the tibial nerve, which controls bladder function, using a special electrode needle.
- Pessary devices are removable devices that keep pelvic organs in proper position. The removal of a pessary device for cleaning can be done at home or in the office of your urogynecologist in Lake Forest, Woodstock, or Park City.
- Pelvic rehabilitation provides a more holistic approach to pelvic concerns using homeopathic remedies instead of medications or surgery. Pelvic rehabilitation may be used to treat concerns such as chronic pelvic pain, constipation, incontinence, overactive bladder, and weakness of pelvic muscles.
