Incontinence

Incontinence is diagnosed and treated by the members of the Urology Division as well as the Women’s Center for Continence and Sexual Health at Premier Medical Group.

What is incontinence?

Urinary incontinence (UI) is the involuntary loss of urine for any reason.

Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is a frustrating problem for more than 13 million Americans. Not knowing when or where you might have an accident and leak urine can affect everything you do, from work to social events, even exercise.

Urinary incontinence affects both men and women but is twice as common in women. Research suggests that half of older women may have some form of UI. Incontinence can be treated and often cured.
