With its ability to address all urinary issues and its provision of a wide spectrum of medical treatment options, Florence Nightingale Hospital Neuro-Urology and Functional Urology Center represents a model approach in the field.
The Center offers patients a range of methods only recently to Turkey and the region, not only in the field of diagnostics, but also at the treatment stage, including bladder botulinum toxin (botox) applications, bio feedback techniques, every kind of bladder suspension procedure, artificial sphincter interventions, prostate and urethra surgery, and peripheral nerve stimulation.
Nearly two thirds of women encounter urinary problems at some time between puberty and old age, while such problems start appearing in about half of men after the age of 45. Amongst these complaints are urinary incontinence, frequent urination and burning, difficulty in urination, sporadic and drop by drop urination, the sudden need to urinate, waking up at night needing to urinate, inability to urinate due to neurological disease, and a lack of urinary control while coughing and sneezing. Treatments for these symptoms vary greatly depending on the underlying cause. Neuro-Urology is a sub-branch of Urology that examines these underlying causes and delivers treatments accordingly.
Urinary disorder is not only a health problem but a major social and psychological issue; correct diagnostic and treatment approaches increase individuals’ social adaptation and the quality of life of their carers, as well as facilitating the correction of the disorder.
