Urinary Incontinence is Never
Many men can experience the involuntary leakage of urine. When this happens frequently enough to be a problem, it’s called urinary incontinence. Contrary to popular belief, urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging or something to be expected after surgery. Urinary incontinence is usually caused by a physical problem and, many times, can be treated with positive results.
Beyond the physical problem, loss of bladder control can also be a strain on a person’s self esteem. Unfortunately, many men are too embarrassed to seek help for this sensitive condition. With proper evaluation and treatment from our specialized team, many men suffering from incontinence can expect significant improvement, and many will find complete relief.

Types of Incontinence
This is the leaking of urine when exercising, sneezing, coughing, laughing or doing other movements that put stress on the bladder. This is caused when the pelvic floor muscles become weak causing the bladder to fall out of position.
This is an uncontrollable urge to urinate that is caused by a hyperactive bladder muscle. Leakage may occur even when the bladder is nearly empty, and the urge to urinate comes much more often than usual, sometimes every two hours during the day and night.
Urge incontinence is caused by an actual muscle malfunction, emotional stress, or a nerve condition.
