Neurologic Urology is a subspecialty of urology that focuses on disorders and conditions related to the bladder, urinary tract or kidney. For example, patients with neurological issues such as Parkinson’s disease might experience problems relating back to their overactive bladders or sexual dysfunction because those are all related directly from how your brain functions during these times in life.
Patients may be born with the condition or develop it after birth due to medical conditions like infection. They can include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Movement disorders
- Birth defects of the spinal cord
- Spinal cord or brain tumors
- Cerebral palsy
- Spina bifida
Neurogenic bladder is a condition that can be caused by damage to the nerves in your brain, spinal cord or other parts of your body. This will affect how you control urination and voiding dysfunction which needs treatment from specialists who are doctors specializing on this type of urology.
