The O-Shot has been shown to help correct mild urinary incontinence in women allowing them to have surgery- free dryness. Up until now the choices for helping with urinary incontinence was to either use panty liners or to undergo a more invasive procedure called a vaginal “sling”. The O-Shot is a simple procedure using one’s owns concentrated platelets also called platelet rich plasma (PRP) that is placed strategically near the urinary continence mechanism. This is performed in the office with minimal discomfort.

Urinary incontinence is the inability to control one’s bladder. Over 13 million women in the US suffer from urinary incontinence. This can be due to a number of reasons which include stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs usually after coughing, sneezing, laughing or any type of abdominal pressure. Urge incontinence occurs mostly because of abnormal signals to the bladder which causes one to feel like they have to urinate immediately.

The O-SHOT works by supporting your urinary continence mechanism. Allowing you to have drier days and to avoid invasive surgery.
