Neuro-Urology with spine problems

Spine problems may lead to disorders of the bladder and bowels, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain. These conditions often have a considerable impact on the quality of life. 

Sufferers suddenly stop their favorite activities, often become withdrawn, stay at home and do not attend sporting or social events in order to avoid embarrassing situations. They lose friends and give up social contact.

Apart from the impact on the quality of life, kidney function may also be impaired. This does not always happen. Disorders of the bladder and bowels, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain are not inevitable fates, they can be helped in many ways.

The basis of successful treatment is a comprehensive work-up of the medical condition.
