Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a common problem in women and men. It can be socially embarrassing, and can prevent you from enjoying a range of activities in day to day life.

There are many different causes for urinary incontinence, some of which include:

  • Stress incontinence
  • Urgency incontinence (overactive bladder)
  • Chronic urinary retention

There are many different options for both sexes in relation to incontinence. Often your specialist will organise a test called urodynamics. This gives information about the bladder and its function. There are many different surgical options available for you in relation to your continence. This can start with medications and then surgical intervention. This can be in the setting of botox into the bladder or a pacemaker to help with your bladder function.

Your specialist will go through these treatment options with you and have a close discussion about the best option for you
