What Is Urinary Incontinence Treatment?
Urinary incontinence may be a little embarrassing to talk about, but really, it's very common for many women, especially those who've gone through childbirth or menopause. At Life Care for Women, Dr. Linda Sodoma is proud to offer women in Chandler, Mesa, and surrounding Arizona communities EMSELLA® urinary incontinence treatments. This is a one-of-a-kind treatment that administers muscle contractions to the pelvic floor through a state-of-the-art chair. These contractions strengthen the bladder muscles, and better yet, it's completely noninvasive. For more information on EMSELLA, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sodoma at our women-led female wellness center in Gilbert, AZ.

Am I a Candidate for Urinary Incontinence Treatment?
Urinary incontinence treatments in Gilbert, AZ at Life Care for Women can be an effective, nonsurgical solution for women experiencing a variety of urinary incontinence issues. Because the cutting-edge EMSELLA platform uses electromagnetic energy to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, there's no concern for risks associated with invasive surgical procedures. EMSELLA treatments are safe for the majority of patients and can be personalized to their unique needs. During your consultation, Dr. Sodoma will listen to your concerns and review any relevant medical history to ensure you can reduce the symptoms of your urinary incontinence with an EMSELLA treatment program.
How Does EMSELLA for Urinary Incontinence Work?
EMSELLA in Gilbert, AZ works by building muscle in the pelvic floor. During this 30-minute treatment, we'll have you sit on the chair while fully clothed while energy pulses throughout your pelvis. This will cause surrounding muscles to contract, which will break down muscle fibers and replace them with stronger, more controlled muscles. While you may notice a tingling sensation during the procedure, it should be relatively comfortable.
What Should I Expect After EMSELLA Treatments?
After your treatment session at Life Care for Women, you can get back to your normal everyday activities. Though some women in Gilbert, AZ and the surrounding areas may notice improvements after just one treatment, Dr. Sodoma and her team typically suggest six sessions over a period of three weeks for maximum results. Within a few weeks after their final session, many patients report increased confidence in their ability to control their bladder. In order to further improve the results of the treatment, there are some changes you can make in your everyday life. For example, we recommend for many patients to cut back on items in their diet that are natural diuretics, reduce caffeinated beverages, and ensure their medications are not contributing to incontinence.
Life Care For Women Reviews
Best doctor and best staff. They are always available and incredibly knowledgeable. I always recommend them. Incredibly friendly front desk staff as well!
Been going to Dr sodoma for many years. Had 3 surgeries with her. She is highly skilled and really listened to me. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
I have to share my happy story with everyone about Dr. Linda Sodoma. I started seeing her October 2022 to discuss my female issues. The moment she walked in the examination room I felt a vibe that I knew right then she was the right doctor for me. She was humble nice and caring, she took the time to listen and answer the questions I asked on every visit, it only got better and better and she always made me comfortable. Fast forward to 12/06/22 to my surgery day. God, know I was scared and most definitely afraid of going under, but once my angel walked in ( Dr. Sodoma ) I knew I was gonna be okay and she reassures me. My mom has always told me growing up there always an angel that watching high and low places, in other words high meaning in heaven where she is now and low meaning on earth meaning Dr. Sodoma. I can’t forget to salute her team in her office because they were fabulous on every visit. Post Op see God will send good people your way when asked and needed and today I needed everything good to come my way to get thur this. Post Op I couldn’t ask for a better nurse. Nurse Tanner at Banner Baybrook in Gilbert he helped out more than he will ever know, he kept me calm when it came to getting my IV started, I had told him my veins were small and that it was always hard for anyone who tried to stick me it would be hard so he went and got the ultra sound machine and bang he got it on the first try, and he answered all my questions so thank you Tanner. Next came the recovery room nurse Charm always made sure I was okay when I would wake up or go back to sleep, everytime my eyes opened she was right there feeding me ice chips until the next time I woke up. Thank you nurse Charm. Last but not least nurse Genny, words can’t express how great she was handing me in my room. I didn’t have to ring for nothing because she was always there like she knew my body also when it was time for me to void along with everything else she was as there, so thank you nurse Genny. God really do answer prayers and today all mine were met. I had to post a review to let everyone know how marvelous Dr. Sodoma and team treated me today like other days. Thanks for everything Dr. Sodoma your patient Dorcas

Urinary Incontinence Treatment FAQs
Do EMSELLA treatments hurt?
No, they don't. EMSELLA treatments work by using electromagnetic energy to gently induce contractions in the pelvic floor muscles to strengthen them. Most patients say that an EMSELLA treatment feels like a slight tingling, tightening, or tugging in the pelvic region as the muscles repeatedly contract and loosen; however, it is not painful or even uncomfortable.
How many EMSELLA treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatment sessions you'll need will depend on your health, symptoms, and the program you and Dr. Sodoma decide on. Most patients will typically see the best results with about 4 – 6 treatment sessions over a 3 – 4 week period.
How long is a typical EMSELLA treatment session?
EMSELLA treatment sessions are quick and easy. A typical session only lasts about 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime or recovery period after an EMSELLA treatment?
No, there isn't. There is no downtime or recovery period after an EMSELLA treatment, so you'll be able to go right back to your normal routine once you're finished.
