Urodynamics

Urodynamic testing or urodynamics is a study that assesses how the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests can help explain symptoms such as:
• incontinence
• frequent urination
• sudden, strong urges to urinate but nothing comes out
• problems starting a urine stream
• painful urination
• problems emptying the bladder completely
• recurrent urinary tract infections
Urodynamic tests are usually performed in Urology, Gynecology, OB/GYN, Internal medicine, and Primary care offices. Urodynamics will provide the physician with the information necessary to diagnose the cause and nature of a patient’s incontinence, thus giving the best treatment options available. Urodynamics is typically conducted by urologists.
