Urinary incontinence treatment on Boston's South Shore
Emsella Treatment for Incontinence
Emsella® from BTL Industries, Inc. is a breakthrough electro magnetic pulse treatment for stress and urge incontinence and pelvic floor tightening. This unique technology provides a completely non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence to improve women’s intimate health and wellness.
Dr. Hamori and Dr. DiEdwardo have long been dedicated to offering the most effective and innovative treatments for women’s wellness and intimate health. Emsella uses pulsed high intensity magnetic waves to strengthen the pelvic floor which means less leakage and more sexual satisfaction.
A recent study showing the effectiveness of Emsella in treating urinary incontinence and sexual function (including orgasm, lubrication and satisfaction) up to one year after the initial six treatments has been published in the Journal of Women's Health Care.
How does Emsella treat urinary incontinence?
FDA-approved for stress incontinence, Emsella utilizes electromagnetic energy to deliver thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single session. These contractions re-educate the muscles of incontinent patients.
Emsella provides electromagnetic muscle stimulation equivalent to thousands of Kegel exercises.
Essentially Emsella is a magnetic muscle stimulation treatment that mimics thousands of Kegel exercises. It helps prevent stress incontinence by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
Addressing female stress incontinence after childbirth
After childbirth, or with age, the muscles of the pelvic floor become weakened. Pelvic floor muscles are the layer of muscles that support the pelvic organs and span the bottom of the pelvis. Strong pelvic floor muscles gives you control over your bladder and bowel. When these muscles become weak, internal organs are not fully supported and can lead to an unintentional release of urine. Many doctors recommend doing Kegel exercises to keep these muscles toned and prevent stress incontinence. Yet, these exercises can be difficult to do long enough or frequently enough to have a real impact.
Dr. Hamori describes how Emsella can strengthen the pelvic floor postpartum.
Dr. Hamori recommends that new mothers can begin treatment 6 weeks after vaginal delivery to restore tone to the pelvic floor, improve sexual function and address urinary leaking.
Emsella is a quick and painless non-invasive alternative to address urinary leakage that simulates 10,000 Kegel exercises in just 30 minutes.

How many treatments are required?
A treatment program typically consists of 2 half-hour sessions. One of the things that makes Emsella so appealing is that there is no need to undress — patients simply sit fully clothed on the Emsella chair. Many patients observe improvements after their first session.
What does Emsella feel like?
The procedure itself feels like a tingling muscle contraction and there is no downtime. Normal activities can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
Why endure the embarrassment and hassle of urine leakage? Try Emsella designed to increase the efficacy of Kegel exercise, restore pelvic floor muscle strength after pregnancy, enhance sexual satisfaction and eliminate stress incontinence.
