Incontinence is treatable
Aurora BayCare urology specialists offer the full spectrum of incontinence treatments. No need to put up with leaking urine any longer.
Types of Urinary Incontinence
While there are four distinct types of urinary incontinence, “stress" and "urge" incontinence are the two most common types, comprising nearly 90% of all cases.
At Aurora BayCare, you will work with a multidisciplinary team of subspecialists, (including highly experienced urologist specialists and urogynecologists), and have access to the latest in treatment options for incontinence, including:
Your doctor may recommend bladder suspension surgery if you have moderate to severe stress incontinence that does not improve with non-invasive treatments such as physiotherapy or medication.
Single Incision Mid-Urethral Sling
Our urologists pioneered the use of the single incision mid urethral sling in our region. This is a less invasive surgical approach to treating urinary incontinence and improving bladder control.
A urethral sling is a piece of surgical tape that supports the urethra. It supports the mid section of the urethra when the muscles and nerves that typically provide this support are weak. This operation is often performed in combination with other procedures.
Benefits of this minimally invasive surgery include:
Bladder suspension surgery is effective specifically for treating stress incontinence. If in doubt, request a second opinion. The number one reason surgery fails is an incorrect diagnosis.
