Do you leak a little when you laugh or sneeze?

You aren’t alone. It happens to nearly one in three women in the United States, and it happens to half of women over the age of 50. If you’re like most of them, it can keep you from doing the things you love. Medical professionals, call it “stress incontinence,” and the good news is that if you have it, there are a variety of treatments available that could get you back to living the life you want to live. 

No matter what your symptoms may be, our team can treat:

  1. Incontinence: the official medical term for when you unexpectedly leak a little from your bladder or bowels when you laugh or sneeze
  2. Pelvic Organ Prolapse: when your organs fall out of their normal position and don’t work the way they should
  3. Vaginal mesh complications: when implanted mesh is no longer effective or is causing other pelvic health issues
  4. Daily quality-of-life issues: recurrent and acute urinary tract infections; overactive bladder; hematuria (when blood appears in the urine); and other conditions.
