About the Incontinence Platelet Injection

What is urinary incontinence?

Incontinence is the involuntary leaking of urine. It ranges in severity from a small leak when sneezing or coughing to a severe and sudden urge to urinate.
Urinary incontinence is a common condition, especially in women who have given vaginal birth because it can cause changes in the anatomy, particularly in the angle of the bladder. Urinary incontinence is also common is women who have had menopause. According to the American Urological Association, more than 25 million Americans have urinary incontinence and over 46 million Americans over the age of 40 have symptoms of overactive bladders.

Urinary incontinence is not always part of aging and there are methods to treat or manage it. According to the American Urological Association, “for most, simple lifestyle changes or health care treatments can ease symptoms or stop urinary incontinence”.

These lifestyle changes include:
- Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water per day slowly over time
- Limiting caffeine intake
- Limiting alcohol intake
- Quitting smoking

Younger people can be affected by incontinence as well, particularly those in high-impact athletics such as gymnastics, running, playing football. According to one study, 20% of female college athletes reported having urinary incontinence.

What procedures does Dr. Mirabadi offer to her patients with urinary incontinence?
For over 30 years Dr. Mirabadi has performed bladder lifts to help her patients with incontinence and overactive bladder symptoms. In addition Dr. Mirabadi offers Incontinence Platelet Injections™ (IPI™) for people who want to try injections before contemplating bladder lift surgery. IPI™ is also used for people who have previously had bladder lifts and are still experiencing leakage. IPI™ involves Dr. Mirabadi’s proprietary methodology and technique of PRP (Plasma-Rich Platelets) which she uses specifically for people with incontinence.

Why is Dr. Mirabadi uniquely qualified to administer IPI™?

What is PRP?
Plasma-rich platelets are extracted from a patient’s blood. The physician then isolates proteins called growth factors and injects them back into the patient in focused areas. PRP has been frequently used with professional athletes which may help them heal faster from injuries.

Is PRP or IPI™ FDA approved?
PRP and IPI™ are not FDA-approved but they have been used in healthcare settings for more than a decade. Multiple studies suggest that PRP may help with healing of wounds and repairing the body.

Does Dr. Mirabadi use PRP for other uses?
Dr. Mirabadi has used PRP to help make patients’ faces and hands look more youthful. PRP can be combined with the patient's own stem cells and/or fat injections, depending on the specific needs of the patient.

In addition Dr. Mirabadi also uses PRP to help patients with her Orgasm-Enhancing Procedure. Please click here for more information.
