Located at the meeting point of urology and neurology, neuro-urology is concerned with the assessment and treatment of functional disorders of the urinary bladder and urethral sphincter and the treatment of the involuntary leakage of urine, known as urinary incontinence or aconuresis.
In particular, neuro-urology is devoted to the women, men and children affected by a disease of the nervous system. In addition, many people with other bladder disorders - with or without accompanying urinary incontinence - can benefit from a specific neurourological assessment and treatment.
Neuro-urology is a young field of medicine that has evolved rapidly over the last 30 years. It has already seen a huge increase in understanding and achieved notable treatment success. Today it is possible to successfully treat nine out of ten people suffering from a functional disorder of the bladder.
Continence Center at Klinik Hirslanden
The Continence Centre at Klinik Hirslanden examines and treats patients with disorders of the urinary bladder and urinary incontinence. The experience of the attending doctors and therapists is pooled in close, interdisciplinary collaboration and the treatment coordinated to achieve the best possible outcome.
A comprehensive assessment of the complaints involving functional examinations of the urinary tract, the pelvic floor and the pelvic nerves, imaging, ultrasound and endoscopy forms the basis for the successful treatment of functional disorders of the urinary bladder and urethral sphincter. Our many years of experience make it possible for us to carry out a comprehensive individual assessment of a range of complaints and disorders and hence to draw up an effective treatment plan.
Our philosophy centres on the whole person. When both assessing and treating medical conditions, we take account of the individual needs, wishes and abilities of each and every person affected, drawing up a personal treatment plan together with our patients and their families.
