Urinary Incontinence

Both men and women experience urinary incontinence (loss of urine without control). If you are experiencing this problem, there may be an underlying cause that can be treated.

Turn to specialists from Jefferson's Division of Urogynecology and the Department of Urology to help diagnose and treat your condition. Our specialists present both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to help you make the most informed choice.

We will utilize the latest tools to diagnose incontinence and other bladder disorders. We offer a full complement of established treatments, including pelvic floor exercises and reconstructive surgery, as well as access to emerging treatment options through clinical trials. In addition, Jefferson urologists and nurses collaborate with cross-disciplinary consultants with expertise in pelvic floor dysfunction (including bowel and urinary incontinence, pelvic pain and displaced organs) and related neurological diseases.

Our urologists also have sophisticated capabilities for testing bladder function. Through a variety of procedures, we can assess bladder pressures and urine flow, enabling us to recommend an appropriate course of treatment for a variety of bladder and urinary conditions.
