Neuro-urology is the study of how the nervous system affects the urinary system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves are very important for the healthy function of the bladder. Neurological diseases and disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and spinal cord injury can disrupt the lower urinary tract and result in conditions such as urinary incontinence and the inability to urinate. Birth conditions such as spina bifida also cause neurological dysfunction of bladder control. Neuro-urology specialists at BRAINS have years of experience in attending to such disorders.
