Treating Stress Incontinence Effectively

Rid Your Life of Embarrassing Accidents

Women all over the world deal with the embarrassing effects of stress urinary incontinence on a daily basis. With stress incontinence, you never know when tragedy will strike, and we can help you to enjoy life without the worry that comes from public accidents.

A woman’s body is a unique thing, and the regular strains and stresses can wear on you as you age. Elderly women are prone to stress urinary incontinence, as are women that have given birth at some point. The urethra is the small tube that moves urine from the bladder, and also controls the flow of urine as it leaves the body. When a small volume of urine leaks through this tube after strain from activities like coughing and sneezing, the condition is known as stress urinary incontinence.

Affecting Women of all Ages

Although stress incontinence is more common in elderly women, women of all ages may suffer from this condition. Childbirth, weight and previous surgeries all play a role in the development of stress incontinence as pressure is placed on the pelvic organs for long periods of time.

Causes of Stress Incontinence

As the muscles controlling the bladder start to weaken and lose function, you may lose control of the flow or urine and when it comes. Ideally, the urethra stays connected to the bladder even as it fills with fluid, but as the muscles weaken, certain physical activities can put strain on the bladder and cause urine to leak from the urethra. Stress incontinence may also be caused by:

  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Childbirth
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Chronic Coughing or Sneezing

Symptoms of Stress Incontinence

If you notice that you have trouble controlling your bladder, and deal with the unintentional loss of urine when you are performing physical activities, you may be diagnosed with this condition.

Treatment Options for Stress Urinary Incontinence

Exercise and simple lifestyle changes may work to strengthen the muscles and firm the bladder. If you want an easy fix to an embarrassing problem, we offer a minimally invasive bladder sling procedure that holds the urethra in place and stops accidents.

During the procedure, a sling is placed inside the body that helps to support the urethra to stop any urine leakage. The sling can be made of donor tissue, mesh or out of your own tissue taken from other parts of your body.

Long Term Prognosis

After a bladder sling procedure, you can return to the activities you love to do without worry of embarrassing accidents. Allow us to give your life back with treatment from some of the best doctors in the world.
