Neurourology is a disorder diagnosed and treated by the Urology Division of Premier Medical Group. Neurourology focuses on disorders of the bladder related to spinal injuries and neurological disorders, more commonly referred to as neurogenic bladder.
Normal bladder function is dependent on the nerves that sense the fullness of the bladder. With nerve disorders, these feelings are affected, causing abnormalities in the bladder function, a neurogenic bladder.
Neurogenic bladder can be the result of a brain or spinal cord injury or a disease that interrupts nerve conduction in the pelvic area and results in loss of bladder sensation and motor control.
