Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence, or the inability to control the bladder, is a common problem with a number of possible causes. Symptoms can range from the leaking of small amounts of urine during normal activities like sneezing or coughing, to a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate that may not leave enough time to get to a toilet.

Generally, lifestyle changes and medications can help control urinary incontinence. If not, there are several surgical options that can be used to treat it.

Please talk to your doctor to determine if urinary incontinence is affecting your quality of life and, if so, what course of action you should take.
