Embarrassing “bladder leakage” – medically called urinary incontinence – is quite common. More than one in three women “pee a little” when they laugh, sneeze, cough or exercise. And while incontinence becomes more common as we get older, it can affect women of any age – interfering with a woman’s quality of life.
But you do not have to suffer in silence or “learn to live with” this frustrating problem. OBGYN Specialists of Columbus offers several innovative, state-of-the-art, non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatments to minimize or completely eliminate urinary incontinence.
We offer Votiva, a revolutionary new, non-surgical procedure that applies radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate the body’s own repair of the tissues and muscles that support the bladder. We also can prescribe medications, hormone pellet therapy, topical estrogen therapy, or pelvic floor therapy that can treat incontinence noninvasively. Additionally, we offer percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation, pelvic floor physiotherapy, Botox injections, sacral neuromodulation, and urethral bulking injections right here in our Columbus, GA office.
For more severe medical conditions, where surgery is a necessary remedy, you can trust Dr. Rees who is a board certified OBGYN with membership in the American Urogynecology Society. In the vast majority of surgeries she can utilize minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgical techniques that require smaller incisions, for less pain and a much more rapid recovery.
Don’t let urinary incontinence ruin your quality of life. Contact OBGYN Specialists of Columbus for a consultation with highly trained and specialized women’s urogynecologist Dr. Ruthann Rees today – and get the relief you deserve from inconvenient and embarrassing bladder leaks!
