YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE WITH INCONTINENCE

From birth defects and spinal injuries to pregnancy and childbirth, incontinence – or the loss of bladder or bowel control—can affect males and females of any age. In fact, according to the National Association for Continence, more than 13 million Americans suffer from incontinence. More than 80 percent of incontinence concerns are treatable with the right diagnosis.

Incontinence can come in all forms. We offer treatment options for those suffering with:

  • Stress incontinence
  • Overactive bladder and urgency urinary incontinence
  • Chronic retention of urine
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting)
  • Incontinence caused by surgery, childbirth, immobility or other factors

Depending on the cause of your incontinence, treatments can include behavioral changes, specialized physical therapy, medication or surgical options. Our highly-trained physicians can determine the right course of action for your specific concern.

AN OPTION FOR PELVIC PROLAPSE

Our team also offers treatment options for patients suffering with pelvic prolapse—or the “dropping” of any of the pelvic floor organs (bladder, uterus, vagina or rectum.) Pelvic floor disorders can be a result of childbirth, obesity, aging, previous surgery and more. Pelvic prolapse can also be the cause of urinary or anal incontinence. Our team specializes in treating pelvic prolapse through advanced surgical methods.
