I love those commercials. Why? Because it perfectly sums up one of the most common and frustrating conditions that I treat; namely, an overactive bladder.
The Mayo Clinic has a wonderful website here that well summarizes the condition in great detail and it’s one that I often refer patients to. Another wonderful website is the treatment algorithm here which is listed on the Society of Urodynamics and Female Urology’s website.
The good news about this condition is that the condition is very treatable. Not only are there two types of medications available but there are minimally invasive options including neuromodulation that have very high success rates.
If you currently suffer from this debilitating and incredibly common disease and would like to learn more about the treatment options available, please call me for a visit, I look forward to talking to you.
