For immediate relief of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women.
What is Bulkamid?
A new and unique urethral bulking system, Bulkamid therapy is a minimally invasive procedure proven to provide long-lasting, safe and effective reduction of stress urinary incontinence symptoms in women.
Stress incontinence is leakage that occurs in response to types of physical stress like coughing, laughing, sneezing, and especially with exercise.
How does Bulkamid work?
Small hydrogel injections are made that create several “cushions” to help the urethra stay closed. This outpatient procedure is performed at our First Urology offices under local anesthesia and takes about 15 minutes. One Bulkamid treatment could help you be free from unwanted urinary leakage or have fewer episodes of urinary leakage.
Bulkamid starts working immediately upon injection. Patients can return to most normal daily activities the same day of treatment.
Three out of four women report that their stress urinary incontinence was cured or improved after Bulkamid treatment.1
Over 70,000 women worldwide have been treated with Bulkamid. Approval for use in the United States was granted by the FDA in January 2020.
Stress urinary incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence…
and while incontinence becomes more common as we age, no one should assume that it is simply a part of the normal aging process.
If urinary incontinence symptoms are bothersome or interfere with your daily activities such as work, hobbies, or social life, talk with our board-certified urologists to find out if Bulkamid therapy is right for you.
