Incontinence is an involuntary, accidental loss of urine.  Many treatment options are available from lifestyle and diet modifications to neuromodulation.

Facts About Urinary Incontinence

IC is a chronic bladder condition that affects both women and men.  Symptoms include pelvic pain and pain in the bladder that is relieved by urinating.  It can be associated with the intense urge to urinate or urinary frequency. Multiple treatment modalities are available to address IC.

Called OAB, overactive bladder is a condition that affects millions of men and women.  It has a variety of causes, but the good news is that it has a variety of treatment options, including lifestyle changes, physical therapy, medications, and treatments such as Botox and neuromodulation.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is the term for a shifting of the location or position of the urinary bladder or other pelvic organs such as the uterus or rectum. POP occurs most commonly after pregnancy and delivery.  Symptoms can include vaginal bulge, pressure, heaviness or discomfort, problems with urination or defecation, and painful intercourse.

Treatment options can range from observation to intra-vaginal pessary to surgery. Your urologist will discuss the best options depending on your degree of bother and quality of life.

About Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Fecal incontinence is the involuntary leakage of gas or stool. Urologists who specialize in the pelvic floor often treat fecal incontinence. Dietary modification, neuromodulation and surgery are all options for patients with fecal incontinence.

Patients with any number of pelvic floor disorders including pelvic pain, dysfunctional voiding, recurrent urinary tract infections, urinary fistula, urinary retention, and neurogenic bladder can benefit from evaluation by a physician trained in pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
