Bulkamid Injections in Denver
Urinary incontinence is a common issue for many women. The lack of bladder control can manifest as several different types. Stress urinary incontinence describes bladder leaks that occur during everyday activities, such as exercise or even laughing.

How Bulkamid Works
Bulkamid is a urethral bulking agent that gives patients a way to relieve stress urinary incontinence without invasive surgery. The procedure uses a smooth, water-based gel that the doctor injects into the wall of your urethra. The gel remains in your body over time without irritating the surrounding tissue.
The procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes and consists of 3 to 4 injections into the wall of the urethra. Bulkamid works by adding additional volume to the wall of the urethra, helping to prevent urine from leaking out of the bladder during normal daily activities.
