A TEAM APPROACH TO CARE
Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary loss of urine or bladder control. It affects millions of Americans, both men, and women. Unfortunately, many men and women believe incontinence is a natural effect of aging to live with and do not know that multiple treatment options are available.
Urinary incontinence is not a disease, but rather is a symptom due to an underlying problem that can almost always be treated.
There are many types of urinary incontinence and different underlying causes for each type. The impact of the problem in one’s life cannot be underestimated.
The chance of embarrassment, limitations to travel and social engagement as well as loss of productivity represent only a part of the difficulties patients experience with this problem. Interest in this condition is currently surging and novel incontinence treatment options are always emerging.
