Treatment of Urological Disorders
Dr. Kim has an enviable record of correcting bladder drop, nocturia (frequent night urination) and the two main forms of chronic urinary incontinence. You may be suffering from one or both:
- Stress incontinence, the most common kind, happens when you cough, sneeze, laugh, run, or perform certain kinds of vigorous exercises like jumping jacks.
- Urge incontinence is when you have discomfort or an inability to hold urine until you can act appropriately. It can happen unexpectedly when you drink water or even hear or touch running water.
You will begin with a confidential consultation with Dr. Kim to review your symptoms and medical history. Dr. Kim will recommend a treatment that is right for you. We offer a number of conservative treatments that are performed in a comfortable, private outpatient facility under local anesthesia.
