Information for Physicians

For patients with urge symptoms with and without incontinence, we are able to offer intravesical administration of botulinum toxin. This treatment is recommended for all patients who prove resistant to treatment with the administration of oral anticholinergics or present intolerance to the medication. Despite the ’off-label use’, this treatment has now established itself due to its simple and repeatable application, the good results obtained and the low level of undesirable side effects.

We are also able to offer you the entire range of incontinence and prolapse surgical procedures for women. These include insertion of transvaginal tapes (TOT, TVT), treatment of cystoceles, enteroceles and rectoceles by transvaginal mesh treatment, sacrocolpopexies and Burch operations, as well as anterior and posterior colporrhaphy where indicated.

We are also able to offer surgical therapy for male incontinence caused by sphincter insufficiency, e.g. following radical prostatectomy, other operations on the prostate or previous cystectomy, by inserting a ’male sling’. Alongside her  previous experience with the “Advance”® tape Dr Anheuser is also interested in the use of adjustable tapes.

If you require any further information about indications for the different treatment methods and/or concerning patient selection, please do not hesitate to contact us. It is also possible for us to arrange for an information day or similar event if there is sufficient interest.

We hope that you will find this information useful and look forward to working with you in this area.
