Mr Richard Parkinson’s FAQs

What are bladder Botox injections?

Essentially these are injections of Botox which act to effectively paralyse muscles, controlling the otherwise involuntary contractions of your bladder that contributes to urinary incontinence.

What is incontinence?

Incontinence is basically the loss of the ability to control your excretory functions. It can be urinary incontinence, which is specific to the bladder, or bowel (also known as faecal) incontinence.
