Mitrofanoff Support provides information, emotional support, reassurance and networking.
Urology problems in general and bladder problems, in particular, are not subjects that are openly discussed. Hence, there is a general lack of knowledge and awareness of what it is like to have a Mitrofanoff.
Mitrofanoff Support offers information and reassurance to individuals (and the people closest to them) who may be about to have, or already have, a Mitrofanoff.
We also work with Healthcare Professionals and Hospital Trusts to improve education and awareness of what it is like to live with a Mitrofanoff.
The purpose of the operation is to restore confidence and convenience to those experiencing incontinence and other urological issues. It is a long-term solution to enable patients to maintain a normal quality of life.
The procedure may be an option for those with congenital malformations, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, or bladder and prostate cancer.
It is important that you take control of your medical condition and not allow it to control you.
What is a Mitrofanoff?
Creates a channel into the bladder
A catheter is used via the channel to empty the bladder
The purpose of this operation is to form a channel between the bladder and the wall of the abdomen to allow intermittent self-catheterisation ie. drainage of the bladder
