Possibly: If the onset is very recent and is due to nerve compression that can be reversed it may be curable. An example is an acute lumbar disc herniation that is treated quickly with surgery. If the condition is chronic it is less likely to respond to treatment though it still may. In chronic cases treatment usually focuses on managing the problem.

Is there a cure for a neurogenic bladder?

Not likely: Actually it depends on the cause of neurogenic bladder. Neurogenic bladder means a bladder that does not work correctly due to a fault in the nerve supply. Usually the cause is not treatable e.g. Paralysis due to stroke. If the cause happens to be treatable then the bladder will get better.

Managed yes: Nb is a permanent condition. Tempoary neurogenic-like symptoms can be present with bruising or compression of spinal cord, spinal meningitis or multiple sclerosis. A chinese physician has reported some success in curing some cases of nb by splicing normal nerves to bladder nerves. Otherwise considered not curable and treated by intermittent catheterization, artificial urinary sphincter implant etc.

Essentially no.: Bruising of spinal cord can cause temporary neurogenic bladder which resolves spontaneously. Occasional cure has been reported by nerve transfer and anastomosis and is a possible hope for the future. Urinary incontinence can be managed in most cases by intermittent catheterization, with or without medication, artificial urinary sphincters, bladder augmentation or urinary diversions etc.
