Helping patients with incontinence is a specialty at the Dallas Center for Pelvic Medicine.
Our Dallas urologists bring their experience and expertise to every aspect of incontinence diagnosis and treatment. Incontinence causes people to lose control over their bladder. This might involve leaking urine when you laugh or cough or feeling an urge to urinate or needing to go to the bathroom all the time. There are a variety of symptoms, depending on the type of incontinence.
Our Dallas urologists treat men and women for four types of urinary incontinence
We treat every type of incontinence, including the two most common types, stress incontinence and urge incontinence which is also known as an overactive bladder.
This is the type most people think of when they hear “incontinence.” Most common among women, stress incontinence causes you to leak urine when you exercise, cough, laugh or perform motions that put pressure on your lower abdominal muscles. It can also happen to men after prostate cancer surgery.
Also known as overactive bladder (OAB), urge incontinence creates a sudden urge to urinate without providing the usual signals that you need to urinate, sometimes making it difficult to find a bathroom in time.
This occurs when you have two types of incontinence at once, most often stress incontinence and urge incontinence, and you experience the symptoms of both types. Our Dallas urologists are experienced in dealing with the symptoms of mixed incontinence.
When you have a bladder that is overfilled, it can cause you to leak small amounts of urine while having no control. This type of incontinence, more common in men than women, also makes you feel that your bladder hasn’t completely emptied, or you may feel like you are straining when you urinate.
Non-surgical and surgical treatment plans provide symptom relief
Patients who come to our Dallas urology office seeking relief from the symptoms of incontinence will be diagnosed and provided with a treatment plan created exclusively for their condition. We may recommend non-surgical treatments such as bladder training, Kegel exercises, lifestyle modifications and medications to treat your incontinence, or we may decide that surgery is the answer to your problem.
Our Dallas urologists are highly trained surgeons who can treat your incontinence with minimally invasive surgical techniques, many of which are outpatient procedures.
