The IWI Comprehensive Treatment Program For Chronic Urinary Tract Infections

Unlock a Life Free from the Grip of UTIs

Are you tired of the constant discomfort, pain, health threat and disruption that chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) bring to your life? If you or a loved one are struggling with recurrent UTIs, we understand your frustration. But there’s hope. IWI’s Comprehensive Treatment Program is designed to provide relief, address the root causes, and empower women to regain control over their urinary health.

Urinary tract infections account for 70 million primary care appointments every year. Even for simple infections, rates of recurrence are high:

  • Around 20-30% of patients don’t get better with initial antibiotic treatment
  • Up to 70% experience another UTI within a year.
  • Dipsticks detect only 40% of chronic infections and some standard cultures miss up to 90% of chronic infections.

IWI Chronic UTI Regimen: At the Intimate Wellness Institute we recognize the negative impact of chronic UTIs on women’s quality of life and the risks chronic UTIs pose to long-term health. We use the latest technology to arcuately diagnose, treat, and prevent recurrence of chronic UTIs.

Why Choose Our Program?

  1. Expertise and Specialization

Our program is led by Dr. Nathan Guerette, a renowned urogynecologist with years of experience treating these issues. The IWI support team, with over 40 years of combined experience, understands the unique challenges that women face when dealing with chronic UTIs. You can trust us to provide the highest level of care and expertise.

Diagnosis: The IWI team will carefully review your history, labs, and perform a physical exam to identify any contributing factors to the UTIs. Bladder function testing (urodynamics) and a look in the bladder (cystoscopy) with a small flexible scope may be performed to identify any functional or physical causes for the chronic UTI. Your urine will also be sent for specialized testing including DNA analysis to identify the specific bacteria accurately and help determine the best treatment. This technology is far superior to standard urine cultures at identifying infections and selecting treatment options.

  1. Personalized Care Plans

We recognize that every woman’s experience with chronic UTIs is unique. That’s why our program starts with a thorough assessment of your condition. Based on your specific needs, we create a personalized treatment plan tailored to you. No one-size-fits-all solutions here.

Treatment: the IWI treatment of chronic UTIs does not involve just repeating antibiotics over and over again. Once the underlying causes of the infection are identified they will be corrected. Common causes are urinary retention, pelvic organ prolapse, bowel issues and atrophy or thinning of the vaginal tissues that make infections easier to contract. If the infection is deep in the tissue up to 1 month of antibiotics may be needed. IWI has the capability to address all these issues in one expert center.

  1. Holistic Approach

Our program goes beyond just treating the symptoms. We take a holistic approach, addressing the physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors that contribute to chronic UTIs. This comprehensive approach ensures long-term relief and better overall health.

  1. Prevention

IWI has the most advanced prevention program for chronic UTIs available. The underlying cause must be eliminated. Once that is accomplished a variety of medications and specialized supplements can be used to help prevent bacteria from re-growing in the bladder. The IWI team will review all preventive measures including hygiene, medications, washes or other habits that may be contributing to the chronic UTIs. Improving menopausal changes to the vaginal tissue is also critical for prevention. IWI has revolutionary treatments using bioidentical hormones, laser and radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation to improve the tissue and help prevent infections.

  • Chronic UTIs and Biofilms: biofilms are a collection of bacteria that can form a mucus like layer on the surface of tissue. There is growing evidence that biofilm formation is a significant cause or chronic bladder and vaginal infections. Biofilms are resistant to antibiotic treatment. IWI is the only practice in the region that has gentle resurfacing lasers and radiofrequency devices that can disrupt the biofilm to allow successful antibiotic treatment.
  • Chronic UTIs and voiding dysfunction: up to 10% of adult women do not empty their bladder well. Retaining urine in the bladder will lead to chronic infections as the bacteria have time to grow. IWI has specialized treatment options including advanced physical therapy, Emsella, neuromodulation and advanced injections to improve bladder emptying.
