Botox Effectively Treats Overactive Bladder, Without the Side Effects of Medication

An overactive bladder, a condition also called "urge incontinence" can seriously affect a person's quality of life, and it is more common that most people think.  Medications help,  but have side effects. Recent research found that a simple, painless Botox injection is just as effective as medication, without the side effects.  Carilion Clinic's Urogynecology Department is the only physician's group in the region performing the procedure. Dr. Jonathan Gleason and Dr. Jerod Greer recently spoke with WDBJ's Jean Jadhon about it.
