Many men suffer from bladder control problems, often as a result of diabetes or prostate surgery. Male urinary incontinence is usually caused by a damaged sphincter, the circular muscle that controls the flow of urine out of the bladder. When damaged, often the unavoidable result of prostate cancer surgery, the muscle cannot squeeze and close off the urethra. This causes urine to leak.

Incontinence can limit your activities…keep you homebound…in costly, messy pads…dealing with the frustration and embarrassment, and the constant fear of leaking and odor. The reality is, you don't have to live with bladder control problems anymore. Our practice specializes in real solutions…from minimally-invasive surgical procedures like the male sling for mild to moderate incontinence, to the gold standard artificial urinary sphincter implant that can resolve even severe incontinence.

MILD TO MODERATE INCONTINENCE

AdVance® Male Sling System

  • Small sling made of synthetic mesh placed inside the body through small Incisions
  • Supports the urethra, restoring normal bladder control
  • Most patients are continent immediately following the procedure
  • Can resume normal, non-strenuous activities shortly thereafter

MODERATE TO SEVERE INCONTINENCE AMS 800® Urinary Control System

  • Artificial urinary sphincter placed completely inside the body
  • Provides simple, discreet urinary control
  • Mimics a healthy sphincter, keeping the urethra closed until you want to urinate
  • Connected system of:
    • Pump implanted in the scrotum
    • Inflatable cuff around the urethra
    • Balloon reservoir implanted in the abdomen

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Control urination by squeezing and releasing the pump
  2. Moves fluid out of the cuff and back into the reservoir
  3. Urine can flow out of the bladder
  4. Fluid returns from reservoir to cuff, squeezing urethra closed again

Sincerely;

Dr. Michael Macksood
