It is fairly common for both men and women of all ages to be affected by some form of urinary incontinence. Urination is a fairly complex function of various muscles and nerves. Therefore, it is not uncommon for a disruption in normal bladder control to occur.
Urogynecology is the study and treatment of female pelvic medicine, pelvic floor reconstruction and incontinence. As you might expect, the term is a contraction of two words - "urology" and "gynecology." A urologist specializes in the treatment of the urinary system while a gynecologist focuses on the female reproductive system. A urogynecologist combines expertise from both disciplines - focusing on the female urinary and reproductive systems and the pelvic floor. Safe and effective treatments and procedures are available to help alleviate incontinence. Talking to one of the gynecologists on staff at McLaren is a good place to start.
