Urinary Incontinence in Raleigh, NC
Urinary incontinence means leakage of urine. It is a common problem and many women are too embarrassed to talk about it. There are different causes for incontinence such as weakening or stretching of tissues and muscles in the pelvis, bladder spasms or neuromuscular problems, and less often urinary tract abnormalities.
At Gynecology & Laparoscopic Surgeons, PC, we perform a number of steps to diagnose the cause of incontinence problems. We use medical histories, voiding diaries, pelvic examinations and urodynamic testing. We can perform urodynamic tests in the comfort and privacy of our office to help us diagnose the type of incontinence. Once we have determined the type of incontinence, we can make treatment recommendations that may include lifestyle changes, bladder training, physical therapy, pessaries, prescription medication, or surgery. Your physician at Gynecology & Laparoscopic Surgeons, PC will help you decide which option is right for you.
