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.

It is treatable: The first line agents to manage neurogenic bladder, or more specifically, detrusor overactivity, are anticholinergic medications such as oxybutinin or tolterodine. Ultimately, if no benefit is gained from these medications, a trial of onabotulinumtoxina (botox) injections in the bladder wall may be tried and has been found to control the symptoms of incontinence for up to a year.

Essentially no: Neurogenic bladder dysfunction can seldom be cured if nerve connection between bladder and brain is disrupted as in spinal cord injuries or myelomeningocele.Strokes, ms, spinal cord bruising can cause temporary nb and can recover spontaneously.Usually managed by a combination of clean intermittent catheterization & medication/condom.Some may be "cured" by an artificial sphincter or ?Nerve replants.
