Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Urinary incontinence is a common health issue that can cause social and psychological discomfort in both men and women. Prof. Dr. Volkan Tuğcu aims to enhance patients' quality of life by offering various modern treatment methods in this field. Here are some of the treatment methods presented:

Treatments for Difficulty in Urination: 

Difficulty in urination can occur for various reasons such as weakness of the pelvic floor muscles or an obstruction in the urinary tract. Among the treatment options recommended by Prof. Dr. Volkan Tuğcu are condition-specific medication treatments, physical therapy methods, and surgical interventions in some cases. A personalized treatment plan is developed for each patient to normalize the urination process.

Biofeedback Application: 

Biofeedback is an extremely effective technique for regaining control of pelvic floor muscles. This method helps patients use their muscles more consciously, aiding in overcoming urinary incontinence issues. Muscle activity is presented to patients as visual and auditory signals via computer, facilitating more effective muscle control.

Pelvic Floor Muscle Rehabilitation: 

Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles is critical, especially in supporting the bladder and intestines. The pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation recommended by Prof. Dr. Volkan Tuğcu includes specialized exercises and therapies targeting these muscles. This rehabilitation program is particularly beneficial for women who have given birth and the elderly.

Incomplete Bladder Emptying Treatment: 

When the bladder is not completely emptied, a constant need to urinate can be felt. For this situation, Prof. Dr. Volkan Tuğcu offers exercise programs aimed at teaching regular and complete emptying of the bladder. Supportive treatment methods such as the use of catheters may also be employed if necessary.

Urinary Incontinence Treatment When Laughing and Sneezing: Involuntary urine leakage that occurs while laughing or sneezing can be an embarrassing situation for many. Prof. Dr. Volkan Tuğcu recommends special exercise programs and lifestyle changes for such cases and may apply surgical interventions if needed.
