If you have a neuro-urological problem, the main goal is to protect your kidneys and ureters. These organs compose the upper urinary tract.
Kidney failure may result from many neurological conditions, for instance, spinal cord injuries. Your urologist may suggest a treatment to protect your kidney function even if you don’t have bothersome symptoms.
Provided that your kidneys are safe, priorities in neuro-urology treatment are:
- Restoring the normal function of the bladder
- Achieving or maintaining continence to improve quality of life
