Voiding Dysfunction and Treatment

Millions of Americans experience symptoms such as pelvic pain, overactive bladder and urinary incontinence but are reluctant to find help. Our team empowers you to get the help you need to regain control of your body and confidence.

What Is a Voiding Dysfunction?

Voiding dysfunctions are conditions that affect the ability of the body to urinate normally. People with a voiding dysfunction may urinate when they don't intend to (like when laughing or coughing). They may also find that they urinate too often, too infrequently or with pain.

We help both men and women who have bladder, ureter and pelvic conditions that result in urinary incontinence, frequent urination and urge incontinence or stress incontinence.

Voiding Conditions We Treat

We treat:


To determine which treatment is best for you, we run several diagnostic tests for voiding dysfunctions, such as:

Imaging Tests
Urine Tests

We use sensors and 3D images to see how your bladder and urinary tract are working in real time. This test helps us identify the best pelvic floor muscles to strengthen.

X-rays, ultrasounds or MRIs help us see pictures of your urinary tract and bladder.

Testing a small sample of your urine tells our team if an underlying infection may be responsible for your symptoms.

We test your bladder function and check for leaks in your bladder by asking you to cough or bear down while your bladder is full.


We offer a wide range of treatment options that can put you back in control of your body. Our team helps you make informed choices about which treatment is best for you.
