Bladder Dysfunction

Bladder Dysfunction

Bladder dysfunction – which is also known as voiding dysfunction – affects a large number of men and women and can have a severe impact on a patient’s daily life. At Innovations in Women’s Health Corpus Christi ObGyn Dr. E. Stanton Shoemaker is an expert in treating patients who suffer from this condition.

Types of bladder dysfunction include urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, obstructions of the urinary tract, and difficulties when urinating due to nervous conditions or injury to the patient’s spinal cord.

An accurate evaluation of the primary causes of bladder dysfunction is vital to easing its symptoms. Once a diagnosis has been identified by your ObGyn Corpus Christi, we will work to design a treatment plan that fits your needs and personal lifestyle.

At Innovations in Women’s Health, we provide a wide range of nonsurgical and surgical options, including dedicated treatments for patients who have neurological problems or who aren’t ambulatory. Our goal is not only to improve the functioning of your bladder, but also to help you maintain as much independence as possible and improve your quality of life.
