Unique to Long Island, Winthrop provides the only pediatric Urodynamics lab. Urodynamics is the study of how the bladder stores and releases urine. Urodynamic tests help your doctor or nurse see how well the bladder and sphincter muscles work and can help explain symptoms such as incontinence, frequent urination, sudden, strong urges to urinate, problems starting a urine stream, painful urination, problems emptying your bladder completely and recurrent urinary tract infections.
this test measures urine flow rate (how fast the urine exists the bladder) and help evaluate the bladder muscle.
Voiding Dysfunction Program
this program includes treatment for Urinary tract infections, daytime urine leaking and overactive bladder and bedwetting. These conditions can occur together or separately and are addressed to each child’s needs to help increase their confidence.
