036IC - Managing Male and Female IC/BPS: Comprehensive Multimodal Therapy for Patients With Urologic Pelvic Pain

Saturday, May 19
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2009

Despite the development of the AUA Guidelines for management of IC/BPS many urologists find treating male and female pelvic pain patients difficult and frustrating. The fact that many patients have overlapping conditions such as IBS, vulvodynia, pelvic floor dysfunction and fibromyalgia makes it even more difficult to create and execute a successful treatment plan for managing this patient population.
In this course we will help the participant learn how to successfully deal with IC/BPS and CP/CPPS patients with an emphasis on treatment options and strategies. The following topics will be included1.Medical management based on clinical phenotyping and the AUA guidelines 2. Instillation therapy both in office and home use 3. When and how to use neuromodulation including troubleshooting post-op problems 4. Botox for both the bladder and the pelvic floor 5. Pelvic floor training such as PT and biofeedback 6.Natural alternatives and compounded medications 7. Pudendal blocks and other pain clinic options 8. What to expect from MAPP and new clinical trials
