For persons living with troublesome stress incontinence who are hoping to avoid surgery, or anesthsia, or those whose leakage is caused predominantly by issues with the sphincter muscle surrounding the urethra, periurethral bulking may be a wonderful treatment solution. Drs. Kimble are able to conveniently provide this treatment as an in-office procedure, using Bulkamid. The procedure itself usually takes less than 30-minutes to perform and patients are able to go home the same day.
During the procedure, Drs. Kimble will inject a water based gel along the periurethra in order to plump it and thereby help prevent leakage. Patients may require more than one treatment to experience greater than 70% improvement in stress urinary incontinence.
