I always thought incontinence was an age thing until I developed it after my pregnancy. Now, I no longer have to depend on pads. Thanks.
Thanks to the sling procedure Dr. Zeid performed, I feel like I have control back over my life. No more embarrassing oops moments for me. -Sonja
I was always afraid of having an accident when I was picking up one of my grand-children. I wish I had done this, years ago!
Types of Incontinence
Involuntary loss of urine during physical exertion, due to weakened or damaged muscles that support the urethra (tube that carries urine out of the body).
Sometimes called overactive bladder. This type of incontinence results in the urge to urinate without the ability to control the bladder. This can be a result of age, excess weight, a neurological condition, an obstructive condition, or nerve damage caused by surgery or trauma.
There are also a number of women who suffer with the symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence. This can make treatment more challenging and could require a specialized program of treatment versus a single treatment modality.
Your physician at Zeid Women's Health Center will work together with you on a treatment plan that takes the nature and severity of your condition into account. We'll share with you the variety of options available, answer your questions and address any concerns.
