Urinary Incontinence Beaumont TX
Urinary Incontinence – the involuntary leakage of urine; in simple terms, it means a person urinates when they do not want to. Control over the urinary sphincter is either lost or weakened. Urinary incontinence is a much more common problem than most people realize
CWHBC physicians use the Intima as first line of defense in rejuvenation and repair of incontinence. This is a short and pain free procedure performed in the office. This procedure is done three times over a six week period of time.
Stress Urinary Incontinence
As best as we know, approximately 20 million American women have lived with urinary incontinence at some time in their lives. However, this number is likely greater because many women are hesitant to discuss incontinence with their health care providers – even when directly questioned. Although up to 30% of women age 30 – 70 have had at least some loss of bladder control, the age range of women seeking treatment for incontinence can be as young as their 20’s and as late as their 80’s and 90’s.
Fecal or Bowel Incontinence
Although not as frequent a complaint as stress urinary incontinence or prolapse, fecal incontinence is still a common condition affecting over 20 million people (~7% of the U.S. population). Although it is more common in older patients, women as young as their 20’s can suffer from this problem. Symptoms can include occasional or frequent involuntary loss of gas, liquid or solid stool (feces). Patients may subsequently seek social isolation and can be left feeling self-conscious and embarrassed. However, this is a treatable condition with potentially good results through either non-invasive or invasive treatments.
