Hysterectomy

Return to Top

A procedure to remove the uterus, a Hysterectomy is performed for a variety of reasons including:

 

• Control heavy menstrual bleeding

• Resolving pain associated with endometriosis

• Prolapse of the reproductive organs.

 

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

 

Traditionally hysterectomy was performed through through a total vaginal approach or an abdominal incision. Laparoscopic approach gives a much quicker recovery time and has fewer complications.  Patients undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy are normally discharged the next day, while abdominal hysterectomy patients may require 2 or 3 days in the hospital. They may also have a longer post-operative recovery time. Most women elect to keep their ovaries in order to avoid immediate menopause. For information about our various other procedures accomplished through laparoscopy click here.

 

 

 

Urinary Incontinence

The accidental or involuntary loss of urine that is usually due to weak muscles in the urinary tract.  There can be several factors that contribute to incontinence including primarily vaginal birth, and menopause that is due to decreased levels of estrogen.

 

Factors can also include neurological, gastrointestinal and pulmonary disease, nervous system disorders, smoking, obesity. Caucasian females are most likely to be affected by urinary incontinence.

 

The Numbers

 

There are reportedly 13 to 25 million people in the United States affected by urniary incontinence, however this number is a low estimate, many cases are not reported because of embarrassment or the belief that there may not be a treatment. We offer comprehensive treatment for urinary incontinence in Rockwall so please give us a call if you are currently suffering from or have questions regarding urinary incontinence.  We offer office-based treatments and surgical-based options so give us a call to find out which is best for you..

 

 

​Types

 

​Stress Incontinence (SUI)

Stress incontinence is an accidental loss of urine, released upon intraabdomical pressure, this can occur when walking, sneezing, coughing or laughing.

 

​Urge Incontinence/Detrusor Instability (DI)

Also known as detrusor instability this is the involuntary loss of urine associated with an strong, abrupt, and often uncontrollable desire to urinate.  The detrusor is the smooth muscle wall of the bladder, when it experiences over activity the result is incontinence.

 

Urge Incontience/Detrusor Instability may be related to conditioning.  One such case may be people when they are out all day are continent, but when arriving home are unable to control a sudden urges due to familiarity with routine urinations.  People with DI may also experience an urge when they see a bathroom or hear the sound of running water.

 

​Mixed Incontinence

When people experience both stress (SUI) and urge (DI) incontinence symptoms they have what is known as mixed incontinence.  40% or more of women experiencing incontinence suffer from mixed incontinence symptoms. If you happen to be one of them give us a call or ​contact us here.

 

​Overflow Incontinence

This occurs when small amounts of urine escape a constantly full bladder without feeling the urge to urinate. This most commonly happens when women stand, bend, or exert themselves. It is very common for women with a large cystocele and could also be caused by under activity of the detrusor muscle.

 

​Procedure

 

Metroplex Women's Care offers Rockwall female urinary treatment through extensive diagnosis and treatment. Proper diagnosis is achieved through:

• In clinic evaluation

• Daily diary tracking spontaneous voids over a 1 to 3 day period

• Physical examination of the lower urinary tract

• Urinalysis and culture – a clean, midstream urine sample

• Formal office Urodynamics.

 

 

Treatment

 

Stress incontinence can be treated by behavioral modification, surgical management or pharmacological treatment. Women with urge incontinence are best treated by behavioral techniques or medications. Our treatment plans offer the least invasive approach first, surgical options are reserved for women who decline, or don't improve following conservative management. There are numerous products available providing security against unplanned voids including protective perineal pads. These products are only temporary fixes however and will not cure the problem.

 

Incontinent women should always avoid excess fluid intake and should limit their intake to about 2 liters a day. Caffeinated beverages should not be taken at all or at least reduced to no more than 8 ounces per day..
