Urogynecology

Help for Loss of Bladder Control

Millions of Americans suffer from frequent urination and loss of bladder control. These conditions are not often discussed but they are nothing to be embarrassed about. They can affect the activities and lives of 30-40% of women of all ages and can be caused by such things as childbirth and aging.

Instead of suffering in silence, women have many simple and safe ways to eliminate or improve these conditions and enhance their quality of life.
