STOP INCONTINENCE with EMSELLA:
NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT FOR STRESS & URGE INCONTINENCE
Emsella is the revolutionary, non-invasive treatment for individuals who suffer from urinary incontinence, whether you experience a sudden need to urinate before involuntarily urinating (urge incontinence) or from urinary leakage (stress incontinence) or both. While most people do not talk about it, incontinence is a common problem among women, of any age. Surveys show that 1/3 of American women experience problems with urinary retention. Emsella offers an effective, non-surgical solution for these people. Non-invasive treatments are performed while the patient is comfortably sitting on an ergonomic chair. Also hailed as the “Kegel throne” the chair is equipped with electromagnetic technology, which stimulates the muscles of the pelvic floor. One, 30-minute session is the equivalent of performing more than 11,000 Kegels and science shows this stimulation substantially strengthens the muscles responsible for urinary retention.¹ Furthermore, this non-surgical solution for Urinary Incontinence is completely painless, allows the patient to remain dressed during treatment, and requires no downtime.

For women, the most common causes of UI include vaginal childbirth, body aging, and menopause.
When you urinate, contracting muscles force urine out of the bladder and down into the urethra. Simultaneously, sphincter muscles around the urethra relax to release the urine out of the body. Incontinence results when the muscles or nerves that help release or retain urine are damaged.
The two most common types of urinary incontinence are
- Stress Urinary Incontinence
- Urge Incontinence
Stress incontinence is the most common type of UI. It refers to urine leakage during exertion or movement (coughing, laughing, sneezing jumping, etc.) The main cause of stress incontinence is vaginal childbirth or menopause. Stress incontinence occurs when the tissues that support the bladder are stretched or weakened, allowing the bladder to exert pressure downward on the sphincter muscles that keep the urethra shut. This prevents the muscles from closing as tightly as they need to for urinary retention during physical stress.
Stress incontinence can be improved by strengthening the tissues and muscles that support the bladder.²
Urge incontinence refers to a sudden “urge” to urinate followed by the involuntary loss or urine. Urge incontinence occurs when abnormal nerve signals cause the muscles in the bladder to contract. Urinary retention is lost when the overactive muscles of the bladder overpower the sphincter muscles that close the urethra.
Similar to stress incontinence, urge incontinence can be improved by strengthening the muscles that support the bladder.²
Pelvic floor exercises, commonly referred to as Kegels, which strength the muscles and tissue that support the bladder, are the most prescribed treatment for improving urinary incontinence.²
Emsella is the first, non-surgical device of its kind to gain FDA clearance for the treatment of urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity. Emsella is an ergonomic chair equipped with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®). During a treatment, the fully clothed patient sits on the chair. Electromagnetic energy then penetrates the pelvic floor, activating neurons that signal the pelvic muscles to contract. One treatment with EmSella induces more than 11,000 supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, or the equivalent of 11,000 Kegels. As a result, pelvic floor muscles are strengthened, the vaginal wall is tightened and the tissues that support the pelvic organs are rebuilt. This leads to a decrease in urge and stress incontinence, greater urine retention, and as an extra bonus, increased sexual satisfaction.¹
As with any medical treatment, results may vary.* Some patients report an improvement in bladder control after one treatment with Emsella.¹ However, for most patients, the average treatment plan includes 6 treatments in total, with two sessions held weekly, for 3 weeks. Research shows that 95% of patients who followed the average protocol reported an improvement in quality of life after just 3 weeks of Emsella, and that two thirds of the patients completely eliminated or reduced their need for pads to catch leakage. ¹*
Emsella cost varies per patient, depending on the amount of sessions scheduled in their treatment protocol. During your consultation with Julia Edelman MD, Emsella prices will be discussed in detail. If this treatment is right for you, we will help you customize a treatment plan that both meets your needs and matches your budget.
