One out of every four women experience loss of bladder control or urinary incontinence. Many women believe that this is just a natural consequence of childbirth or merely getting older and something they have to live with. However, urinary incontinence is not a problem that women must tolerate. There are many treatment options available for women to return to life without pads or frequent trips to the bathroom. The WomanCare Center for Bladder Control offers a number of treatments ranging from simple pelvic floor muscle exercises to outpatient minimally invasive surgery.
At our Center for Bladder Control, we use comprehensive testing to determine precisely what type of bladder problem exists and than, based on the results of this testing , individual history ,and physical examination , a unique treatment plan is developed. The WomanCare Center for Bladder Control offers all types of treatment for urinary incontinence. In fact, our team at WomanCare educates other physicians to implement these treatments and perform these surgical procedures.
Often urinary incontinence is associated with other problems. Pelvic Organ Prolapse is a condition that also can occur as a consequence of childbirth and aging. Pelvic pressure, pain with intercourse, incomplete voiding, difficulty evacuating the rectum while having a bowl movement, and incontinence of stool or gas are just some of the issues that suggest other correctible defects are present in the vagina or pelvis. WomanCare understands how urinary incontinence can adversely affect all aspects of a woman’s life. We truly use a very thorough and comprehensive approach to resolving these issues. The frustration, embarrassment, and loss of dignity are completely unnecessary because these problems can be effectively treated.
Therefore, if your problem is urinary incontinence or any of the other problems listed above, what are you waiting for? The problems are not going to resolve themselves. In fact, in most cases they will continue to get worse. Please discuss these issues with your Womancare physician. He, or she will order the necessary testing and you will be seen in our Center for Bladder Control. Once you complete the testing process, you will meet with Dr. Kahan , to discuss the results or our evaluation and be offered treatment options unique to your situation.
