Urinary incontinence affects 15 to 50 percent of women of all ages. The risk of developing incontinence increases with aging, obesity, diabetes and childbirth. As women age, they may experience uterine or bladder changes that interfere, or sometimes even prevent, women from fully participating in normal daily activities. A complete continuum of options to repair and treat uterine and bladder conditions are available at Providence Tarzana Medical Center. Whenever possible, we treat uterine and bladder conditions with leading edge, non-surgical, gynecologic options that help women to quickly return to their active lifestyle. When surgery is required, we offer minimally invasive options for bladder lifts, hysterectomies and treatment of bleeding disorders or fibroids. Our care team of highly trained doctors and nurses strive to provide a wide range of healthcare options in a compassionate, caring environment.
Many advances for the treatment of incontinence have been made in the past 10 years. Providence Tarzana Medical Center urologists can conduct a comprehensive evaluation, including diagnostic tests to determine what is causing leakage. There are many forms of urinary leakage, including stress, urge, overflow, functional and mixed incontinence; each requires a different treatment. There are several treatment options available, from exercise to a surgical sling to lift the bladder. Our medical therapy and surgical options employ the latest techniques to relieve women of this uncomfortable and often frustrating medical issue.
