Urodynamics is a diagnostic procedure that functions as a “stress test” for the bladder. UDS helps your urologist understand how your bladder is functioning. This procedure also helps to determine the interaction between your brain and the nerves and muscles involved in urination. It is a procedure that does not require sedation and takes about an hour to complete. Diagnostic accuracy is improved with this procedure, allowing your urologist to provide you with the most appropriate treatment plan.
