Expert Care for Urinary Tract Problems in Men and Women
Urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control can be a debilitating and embarrassing problem. Fear of accidents prevents many people from enjoying activities and outings with family and friends, and can lead to social isolation. Although incontinence is not a normal part of aging, it is more common in older people.
