My brother has a neurogenic bladder. Is there a cure for this?

Unfortunately not . There are a number of management/treatment options for neurogenic bladder, but no actual cure. We can help may patients with medication to increase bladder capacity, relax or tighten urinary sphincter with or without intermittent catheterization. Can also enlarge bladder capacity surgically with an intestinal augmentation cystoplasty or manage incontinence with an artificial urinary sphincter.
This would be . Dependent on several factors including the age of your brother, how long standing the problem is as well as its severity along with the reason or cause of the neurogenic bladder. He needs to see a urologist.

I have a neurogenic bladder. Is there a cure for this type of? Condition?

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. Read more...

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. Read more...
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.

I have a neurogenic bladder is there a cure?

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. Read more...
