Urogynecology practice in Park City, IL area offers information on Botox for overactive bladder

Botox is a neuromodulator that has been available for many decades and has been used in the past for both medical and cosmetic concerns. Most women who hear of Botox associate these injections with the treatment of folds and wrinkles on the face. However, this medication has also been FDA approved for many other indications, including treatment for overactive bladder. This is why many patients who visit a urogynecology practice in the Park City, IL area may be introduced to the idea of undergoing Botox injections for treatment.

Botox for overactive bladder

Botox works by reducing the muscle contractions that occur. It is injected directly into the bladder muscles to block the nerve impulses and reduce the tightening of the bladder muscles. This can reduce overactive bladder symptoms. Patients must understand that these injections are not permanent, and patients should revisit Dr. Gandhi of Partners in Pelvic Health North Shore Urogynecology for regular treatments spaced approximately nine to 12 months apart. This will ensure effectiveness.

Botox is great for patients who are seeking a temporary solution for their concern until they have decided on a permanent option such as surgery. It can also be used for patients who want to address the issue without having to deal with invasive procedures. Dr. Gandhi may suggest Botox for patients who want a non-surgical approach to their overactive bladder concerns or for those who want a more affordable solution. However, Dr. Gandhi will also discuss the various options available for those who are struggling with overactive bladder to allow them to make an educated decision regarding their care.
