Continence Treatments

Bladder Botox

Bladder Botox is a procedure to treat urinary incontinence due to overactive bladder.

Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation

Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat Overactive Bladder. It requires no hospital stay or anaesthesia. At APC, we treat both men and women with symptoms of Overactive Bladder with PTNS. It is effective regardless of age, and reduces frequency, incontinence episodes, night-time voids and urgency. Studies have shown significant improvements in quality of life.


Urodynamic studies test how well the bladder holds and releases urine. These tests can show how well the bladder works.

Bladder Pain

Bladder pain patients often experience frequent urination, sensation of constant urge to void and chronic pain. Our team of specialists will assess your symptoms and perform necessary tests to treat your symptoms.
