Interstitial Cystitis: What is it and How do we Treat it?
The Mountain Land Pelvic Health Podcast is back with another episode! This month, we speak with Dr. Lisa Stout about what Interstitial Cystitis is and how it is treated from both a urology and physical therapy standpoint.
Dr. Stout is a board-certified urologist and the first female urologist in the state of Utah. She went to medical school at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington DC, had her internship and residency at Kaiser Hospital Foundation in Los Angeles, CA. She has a general urology practice where she treats both men and women but has focused recently on female bladder, incontinence and prolapse issues.
During this podcast, we discuss interstitial cystitis from both a urology and pelvic floor physical therapy standpoint. We talk about common complaints, symptoms, treatment approaches including medications, instillations, tibial nerve stimulation, interstim placements and pelvic floor retraining.
