Bladder Care

The secret's out

Urinary incontinence, or inability to control the bladder, is a common problem. Women often experience incontinence during their childbearing years, through menopause, and after menopause. This condition causes some women to feel self-conscious and avoid certain activities. Women with severe cases can even become reclusive. However, the secret's out—there's no need to suffer in silence. Freeman offers safe, innovative solutions for a leaky bladder.

The first step involves getting an evaluation to determine the cause of the leakage. New medications for certain types of incontinence have demonstrated great success. Additionally, patients may find relief from contemporary surgical and nonsurgical solutions. These include laparoscopic, minimally invasive procedures, which are procedures performed with the help of a tiny surgical instrument inserted through a small incision. These improved treatment options result in quick recovery, allowing most patients to return to work and regular activities right away.

With so many advances in medical technologies today, why suffer? Talk to your healthcare provider if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • Leakage when you cough, sneeze, laugh, jump, or run
  • Leakage when you hear running water
  • Inability to make it to the bathroom on time after feeling the urge to go
  • Waking up several times at night with an urge to go or with leakage

You no longer have to endure a leaky bladder. Call to learn about treatment options today.
