If you have a urology issue, you don’t have to travel to Columbus or the surrounding areas for treatment. Adena offers the latest treatments that a close to home, including:
An enlarged prostate is the main cause of frequent urination, slow stream, hesitancy and nighttime urination in men. This minimally invasive procedure, also called prostate laser surgery, uses a green laser to vaporize prostate tissue that blocks urine from exiting the bladder. The procedure is done using thin fiber inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. That means there are no incisions for a faster recovery time.
Interstim therapy is a procedure designed to help men and women with bladder control problems by implanting a small medical device to send mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerve. Located just above the tailbone, this nerve controls the bladder and surrounding muscles that manage urinary function. The stimulation helps the brain and the nerves to communicate so the bladder and related muscles can function properly. The electrical stimulation often eliminates or relieves symptoms in most patients.
Adena Urology offers percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS), which is designed to help patients with overactive bladders return to living a normal life. PTNS is an office-based, minimally invasive treatment that indirectly stimulates the nerves responsible for bladder control using the tibial nerve in the lower part of your leg. The treatment is administered using a small, slim needle electrode near your tibial nerve, which is connected to a battery powered stimulator. The stimulator’s impulses travel to the tibial nerve, and then to the sacral nerve plexus, which is responsible for controlling bladder function.
