Neuro-Urology Program is staffed by specialists who help patients with voiding problems due to neurological diseases and related urinary symptoms.
Every year, our urologists care for hundreds of patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction caused by neurological disorders. In every case, our goal is to restore patients to fulfilling, productive lives by helping them manage lower urinary tract symptoms
What to Expect
Patient care begins with a comprehensive evaluation by one of our neuro-urology specialists. For the initial appointment, please bring your medical records and any test results (if applicable), including X-rays.
During the evaluation, you can expect the following:
A review of your medical history, test results and notes from your referring physician and/or neurologist. An in-depth conversation about your urinary symptoms and associated symptoms related to bowel and sexual function. A discussion of your lifestyle, neurological disorder and any other illnesses, as well as expectations for your treatment and outcome.
For your convenience, additional testing (if necessary) is performed onsite. Tests may include:
- CT scans
- Blood tests
- Urine cultures
Our staff also may recommend urodynamics testing, an advanced method to understand the source of the problem. Most tests are noninvasive or minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis.
Personalized Care for Your Symptoms
After evaluating you and examining your test results, your physician designs a personalized treatment plan to alleviate your lower urinary tract symptoms. Whenever possible, your physician will begin treatment with a conservative therapy that will be safe, effective and least disruptive to your life..
