What you should know about leaky bladder and urinary incontinence

Female Urological Disorders

If you suffer with a bladder control problem or urinary incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, alone and uncomfortable talking about it. But you should know that over 13 million people – men and women – in the United States have this problem.

What many people don’t know is that it can be treated. Today’s technology and treatments are extremely effective for bladder control problems and urinary incontinence. So you need not suffer in silence or be forced to live your life differently.

What you should know about treatment

At Genito-Urinary Surgeons (GUS), we specialize in helping women with embarrassing and uncomfortable bladder control problems. We know how to treat them and we understand how you feel.

Defined as the “involuntary loss of urine,” incontinence can present in two different forms: stress incontinence – the loss of urine during such activities as coughing, sneezing or even walking or running – and urge incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, which results in frequent, uncontrollable urges to urinate.

We carefully evaluate every person who comes to us with a bladder control or urinary incontinence problem. Many can be improved with special pelvic floor therapy or medication. Sometimes surgery is the best option. With our thorough in-office evaluations, we’ll help you decide which treatment option is best for you. We’re the only group that offers you a complete range of urologic services right here.

The truth about leaky bladders

Aging does not automatically cause bladder control problems or urinary incontinence or bladder shrinkage. Bladders don’t shrink over time, and problems can occur at any age.

We can determine whether leakage is being caused by the bladder, pelvic floor, or both. We offer the most advanced diagnostics and solutions, and we’re known for delivering personalized care.
