BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Zipper Urogynecology Associates, a Melbourne-based urogynecology practice, invites women to participate in a new research study to evaluate the effectiveness of investigational laser therapy in the treatment of overactive bladder in women.

To join the study, participants must:

• Meet the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) definition of overactive bladder or urinary frequency.

• Have failed to respond to non-invasive treatments for the underlying disorder or have declined other treatment.

Following the initial examination and laser procedure, participants will avoid unprotected sexual intercourse over a three-week period.

The total estimated time commitment is five hours in a year.
