Say Goodbye to Bladder Leaks
Bulkamid is a minimally invasive and long-lasting treatment option for bladder leaks caused by stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
What Is the Bulkamid Procedure?
Bulkamid is a urethral bulking agent that is used to treat SUI. It is a smooth, water-based gel which remains in the body over time without causing reactions in the surrounding tissue. The Bulkamid procedure consists of 3-4 injections into the wall of the urethra (this is the tube that allows urine to leave the bladder). By adding additional volume to the wall of the urethra, it helps prevent urine from leaking out of the bladder during normal daily activities.
Could It Be Right for You?
Many women opt for urethral bulking as a treatment for their SUI over invasive surgery because the procedure is minimally invasive, can be done under local anesthetic, usually takes around 10-15 minutes and there is a short recovery time along with less risk of serious complications. Let’s discuss the important safety information for the full list of potential complications. Furthermore, having Bulkamid may not exclude you from pursuing other treatment options in the future.
