About our Bladder Treatments

Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumour (TURBT) – is the surgical removal of bladder tumour or tumours. This procedure is both diagnostic and therapeutic as the surgeon removes the tumour and sends it for histological assessment. Bladder irrigation may be used immediately following the surgery and a catheter may remain in place for a day or two after the procedure.

Bladder Instillation – Intravesical therapy for bladder cancer where drugs are put directly into the bladder through a catheter. Both chemotherapy and immunotherapy drugs can be given this way.

Cystectomy – Removal of the urinary bladder. This may be done to treat muscle invasive and/or high grade bladder cancer.

Botox for Overactive Bladder (OAB) – OAB can be described by the symptoms of urinary urgency with or without urgency incontinence. It’s usually accompanied by frequent urination during both day and night hours.

When botox is injected into the bladder muscle, it treats the thick muscle bands, known as trabeculation. These are typically present in conditions that cause obstruction to the outflow of urine or bladder overactivity. By temporarily paralyzing a portion of the bladder muscle, OAB symptoms can improve dramatically. Botox is usually used where there has been a poor or no response to medications. The goal of botox in the bladder is to effectively treat persistent urinary urgency, frequency and urgency incontinence. Botox can be used to treat OAB for both males and females.
