Female Urinary Incontinence

Female urinary incontinence is a common condition in which a woman has involuntary leakage of urine from the bladder. Urinary leakage can have a significant impact on the quality of a woman's life.


There are several types of urinary incontinence, including stress incontinence, urge incontinence, mixed incontinence, and overflow incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when the bladder is under pressure, such as during coughing or sneezing, and leads to urine leakage. Urge incontinence is characterized by a sudden and intense need to urinate, followed by involuntary leakage. Mixed incontinence is a combination of stress and urge incontinence. Overflow incontinence occurs when the bladder doesn't empty completely, leading to a constant dribbling of urine.

There are several treatment options for female urinary incontinence, including pelvic floor therapy, medications, and surgery. The appropriate treatment depends on the type and severity of incontinence, as well as the woman's overall health and personal preferences.  

We also offer minimally invasive outpatient procedures to correct dropped bladder using TVT (tension free vaginal tape).

We are trained in the diagnosis and management of urologic problems in women. We offer testing and treatment for these problems and we are equipped so that much of it can be done in our office. With the right treatment, many women can effectively manage or even eliminate symptoms of urinary incontinence, improving their quality of life.
