Incontinence

 

Have you adjusted your lifestyle to accept your lack of bladder control? Fearing your next embarrassing moment? Stop running to the bathroom and get back to being you. Fix it and stop living with it. Take that first step to regain your freedom by calling the Pelvic Continence Care Center.

Women: You're Not Alone

Coping with pads and embarrassing moments is not a normal part of aging. There are a large number of women that simply live with a pelvic floor disorder. For many this is socially debilitating and difficult to talk about. Unfortunately women adjust their lifestyles rather than fixing the problem.

Experience and Technology

Urologists and nurse practitioners at the Pelvic Continence Care Center are experienced and offer the most current techniques available with top-of-the-line equipment to accurately diagnose and manage female pelvic floor disorders. Our physicians are also specially trained on the latest minimally invasive techniques available for the treatment of female urinary incontinence and vaginal vault prolapse. The result is less pain and a quicker recovery to help you get your life back. 

For good bladder control, all parts of your system must work together. The muscles of the pelvic floor control the flow of urine and support the organs found within the pelvis like a “hammock.” The pelvic floor muscles hold up the organs, the sphincter muscles control the flow of urine, and the nerves activate these muscles to function. When one or more of these components becomes weak, the system is unable to provide the needed support to keep the urethra closed tightly. The result is a pelvic floor disorder.

Pelvic Floor Therapy might be relevant treatment if you have one or more of the following conditions:

Frequent Nighttime Urination

Interstitial Cystitis

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Stress Incontinence

Urinary Frequency/Overactive Bladder

Urgency/Urge Incontinence

Urinary Tract Infection

Therapy can help eliminate and manage these conditions while restoring confidence and social integration. for information on Non-Invasive Treatments.

There are a large number of women that simply live with urinary incontinence. For many this is socially debilitating. Urinary incontinence is a condition which patients are not comfortable speaking about with their family doctors or friends. Unfortunately women adjust their lifestyles rather than fixing the problem. 

Stress Urinary Incontinence:
Experiencing urinary leakage while coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising?

Overactive Bladder and Urinary Urge Incontinence:
Are you urinating more than 8 times during the day with a strong sense of urgency? Does your need to urinate result in leakage and an inability to make it to the bathroom in time? 

PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE

An estimated 34 million women worldwide are affected by pelvic organ prolapse (POP). POP is found to be a difficult topic for women to talk about. POP is essentially a form of herniation of the vaginal wall due to laxity of the collagen, fascia and muscles within the pelvis and surrounding the vagina.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse includes:

Cystocele: bladder herniation through the upper vaginal wall.

Rectocele: rectum bulging through the lower vaginal wall.

Enterocele: bowel bulging through the deep vaginal wall.

Uterine prolapse: uterus falling into the vaginal wall.

PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE REPAIR

Other Vaginal Issues

Atrophic vaginitis:
Vaginal dryness and irritation experienced by the patient affecting intercourse - risk of urinary tract infections.

Urethral diverticulum/urethral cysts:
Cystic dilation or cystic mass of the glands near the urethra due to surgery, vaginal birth and unknown causes.

Vaginal/Pelvic Pain:
Pain occurring with or without intercourse, along with bladder pain due to a variety of causes. 

Have your patients adjusted their lifestyle to accept a lack of bladder control? Postmenopausal women, or those who have given birth vaginally, might put up with their incontinence as a normal part of aging. Your patients could just be too embarrassed to understand or talk about their problem. They might not even know they have a pelvic floor disorder.

The Pelvic Continence Care Center understands how this condition affects women. Physicians and nurse practitioners at the Center will help your patients make an informed decision on a treatment plan to fix their problem and reclaim their life.

Urologists and nurse practitioners at the Center are experienced and offer the most current techniques available for diagnosing and managing female pelvic floor disorders.
