Incontinence - Men
Urinary incontinence is the medical term used to describe the condition of not being able to control the flow of urine from your body. It usually happens because the bladder sphincter is damaged or scarred and cannot squeeze or close off the urethra. This means urine can leak or flow freely from the bladder.
Within the past decade, there have been many advances in the treatment of incontinence. Many men who, years ago, underwent an "open" procedure to remove the prostate have suffered with urinary incontinence. But there is no need to suffer any longer. The Urologists on the Medical Staff at Fremont Health Medical Center have been utilizing a "male sling" to support the muscles around the urethra, a treatment that has been highly effective.
