Bladder Botox

Botox® is a muscle relaxant, which works by reducing uncontrolled contractions of the bladder muscle and increasing bladder capacity. This helps relieve symptoms of overactive bladder.

The procedure may be performed at the Rosemark facility or at the hospital.

PROCEDURE OBJECTIVES

The reasons to have Bladder Botox® injections are to reduce urinary symptoms such as the sudden desire to pass urine, the need to urinate frequently and urinary leakage associated with urge to urinate.

THE PROCEDURE

The Bladder Botox procedure involves a hysteroscopy. During the procedure, a hysteroscope is passed through the urethra into the bladder. Once in the bladder, the surgeon injects Botox® into the bladder wall from the inside.

Effects of the Procedure

The results of the Botox® injection usually take between three days to three weeks to take effect, so the patient will not notice a difference immediately after the injections. Most patients find the effects of the injections last between six to nine months, although they can last longer. Repeated injections will be required each time the effects wear off.

RISKS

The risks of Bladder Botox® can be divided into those associated with the hystersope and those associated with Botox® itself.
