Urodynamics testing is an assessment of how well the bladder does its job of storing and releasing urine. We are pleased to offer this service in our office. Urodynamics is helpful in determining the right treatment for problems such as incontinence or leaking urine, frequent urination, or the feeling of not emptying your bladder completely.
You will be asked to empty your bladder immediately before the test. During the test, your bladder is filled with sterile water. While your bladder is filling you will be asked questions to assess when you begin to feel bladder fullness. You will also be asked to cough to evaluate any amount of leakage of urine and how the bladder muscle functions.
If you feel you have a bladder problem, talk to your provider to see if Urodynamics testing could help you.
