The Center for Women’s Health offers an individualized treatment plan for pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence. Women with urinary leakage, pelvic pain, pelvic relaxation, urinary frequency and fecal incontinence are treated with a variety of modalities including biofeedback and muscle stimulation. For many women, these nonsurgical options provide adequate symptom control. For those women with persistent symptoms, we can provide appropriate treatment options that include medication, surgery, or both.
Consider making an appointment at the Continence Program offered at the Center for Women’s Health. A specially trained continence nurse practitioner will work closely with your healthcare provider to evaluate and treat your bladder issues. Most insurance companies cover these services.
