In-Office Treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence
Valley’s Urogynecology program offers Bulkamid®, an FDA-approved, office-based procedure to quickly and effectively treat stress urinary incontinence in women.
How Does Bulkamid Therapy Work?
Bulkamid therapy is a non-invasive, long-lasting urethral bulking injection that has shown to be a safe and effective treatment for urinary stress incontinence. Patients undergo a simple injection under local anesthesia, with the entire office procedure lasting no more than 15 minutes.
There is zero downtime or recovery for Bulkamid – making this an attractive alternative to the traditional gold standard surgery for stress urinary incontinence (midurethral mesh sling).
Who Can Receive Bulkamid Therapy?
Ideal candidates for the Bulkamid procedure include women with stress urinary incontinence who experience leakage of urine during exertion (for example while exercising, coughing, sneezing, etc.). This injection does not interfere with future pregnancies and can be performed even if future fertility is desired. It also does not interfere with any potential surgery for urinary incontinence and can be repeated as many times as needed.
“Stress urinary incontinence affects more than 30 percent of women. We are pleased to be able to offer this breakthrough, non-invasive treatment to our patients.”
