Neuro-urology focuses on the complex relationship between the nervous system and the urinary and bowel functions. When this delicate relationship is disrupted, various disorders can arise, affecting both men and women of all ages.

Common Neuro-urological Conditions:

Overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) : Frequent and urgent urination, often with small amounts, and bladder leakage.

Neurogenic voiding dysfunction: Difficulty emptying the bladder due to nerve damage.

Erectile dysfunction (ED): Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection.

Urinary retention: Inability to pass urine despite a full bladder.

Fecal incontinence: Uncontrolled loss of stools.

Neurogenic bowel dysfunction: Difficulty with bowel movements due to nerve damage.

Causes of Neuro-urological Issues:

The causes can be diverse, ranging from neurological conditions like spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis to diabetes, pelvic surgery, and medications. Identifying the underlying cause is crucial for selecting the most effective treatment.

Treatment Options in Neuro-urology

There are several options for neuro-urology treatment, depending on the specific condition and its severity. These include:

Behavioral therapy: Bladder training for timed voiding, pelvic floor muscle exercises, and lifestyle modifications.

Medications: To relax the bladder muscles, stimulate bladder contractions, or manage neurological symptoms.

Neurostimulation: Implanting devices that send electrical signals to specific nerves to improve bladder and bowel control.

Surgical procedures: For more complex cases, minimally invasive or open surgeries might be recommended to correct anatomical abnormalities or implant devices.

Key Procedures in Neuro-urology:

Sacral nerve stimulation: A minimally invasive procedure involving implanting a small device near the sacral nerves to regulate bladder function.

Botox injections: Injecting Botox into bladder muscles can relax them and reduce overactivity.

Neuromodulation implants: Devices implanted in the spinal cord to influence nerve signals associated with bladder and bowel function.
