Urinary incontinence - weak bladder

There are two types of urinary incontinence, related to the two main causes of leaking urine. One type is caused by the weak support under the neck of the bladder; it is called stress incontinence and causes leak when coughing, laughing, sneezing, and running. The second type of incontinence is called overactive bladder or urge incontinence, the leaks happen when you need to pass urine, you may be unable to reach the toilet without the accident. Weak bladder of whichever type is a very distressing condition. This is not, as often quoted an inevitable part of aging. There is no need to suffer in silence, the help is at hand.

In most cases we will be able to cure the incontinence regardless the type. We also offer the diagnostic tests to find out the reason of leaking urine; this test is called urodynamics. Following the diagnosis we offer treatment, in some instances the treatment may require surgery.
