Urodynamic studies are performed to test how well the sphincters, bladder, and urethra hold and release urine. These tests report how well the bladder is working and the reason for leaks or blockages, or urine. The tests also assess any presence of involuntary contractions in the bladder. Urodynamics helps find the cause or problems associated with improper bladder emptying, urine leaks, frequent urination, weak urine flow, intermittent urine flow, and recurrent urinary tract infections. The healthcare provider will inform the patient of some instructions depending on the recommended test. However, most o the tests do not require any precautions or restrictions. 

At UMMC, we have the most advanced urodynamic machines which diagnose different types of incontinence and difficulty in passing urine and help the doctors provide the proper treatment. The laboratory is well equipped with an entire range of studies, including filling and voiding cytometry, uroflowmetry, voiding cystourethrogram, and urethral pressure profile studies. We have highly trained physicians, urologists, nurses, and specialists who provide the utmost care to the patients.
