Female Urinary Incontinence Treatment in Ventura County

Urinary Treatments

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. There are several types of urinary incontinence.

  • Stress Incontinence: Women often experience stress incontinence after giving birth. This type of incontinence is associated with coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising.
  • Urge Incontinence: Women who suffer from urge incontinence have a sudden strong urge to urinate, but bladder contractions occur before they can make it to the bathroom.
  • Overflow Incontinence: Overflow incontinence occurs when the bladder fills up but doesn’t empty, and the urine overflows beyond what the bladder can hold
  • Overactive Bladder (OAB): OAB is a sensation of urinary urgency that drives people to the bathroom multiple times a day. This may or may not be accompanied by urge incontinence.
  • Mixed Incontinence: Mixed incontinence is a combination of more than one type of incontinence, usually stress and urge.


  • Prescription Medications: anticholinergics or beta-agonists can help with overactive bladder (OAB) and may be helpful for urge incontinence.
  • Periurethral Bulking: Involves injecting hydrogel into the area where the bladder meets the urethra to narrow the urethra and reduce leakage.
  • Botox® Injections: Injections to the bladder
  • The Burch Procedure: A surgery to improve stress incontinence
  • Sacral Neuromodulation: The surgical implantation of a pacemaker-like device to electrically stimulate the bladder and restore normal communication between the brain and the bladder and/or bowel.
  • Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation: an acupuncture type therapy performed in the office to improve overactive bladder. A small needle is placed in the ankle to stimulate a peripheral nerve that electrically restores communication between the nervous system and the bladder.
  • Sling Procedures: Surgery to support the neck of the bladder in women with stress incontinence.
  • Pelvic Floor Muscle Rehabilitation: Using a vaginal electronic probe to enhance coordination and strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles to treat vaginal pain, sexual pain, urinary dysfunction and bowel dysfunction.
