Next Generation Bladder Control Solutions for Women

Did you know that more than 50 million Americans are affected by symptoms of bladder control? In fact, it is one of the most common health issues that women face.

While many people may think that the condition only affects older wo­men, the truth is that women of all ages may have symptoms related to incontinence (bladder leakage) or overactive bladder. These symptoms are much more than a nuisance! They are not only embarrassing, but can significantly impact a woman’s life, and in some women can be debilitating.

There is no need to suffer in silence as there are solutions! The first step is to identify the type of bladder problem you have. Here are some questions to consider:

  1. Are you experiencing leakage with coughing, sneezing, lifting heavy items, exercising or even just walking?
  2. Have you been avoiding sexual activity because you are afraid you might leak?
  3. Are you having voiding symptoms such as urinary frequency, uncontrollable urges or nighttime voiding? Are you worried that you won’t make it to the bathroom in time?
  4. Are these symptoms disrupting your life?
  5. Have you sought treatment options or have you not because you fear that surgery is the only option?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, The Women’s Bladder Control Center of Excellence at Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center (PCUMC) can precisely diagnose your bladder control problem and customize a urinary treatment plan for you.

Dr. Pugach, PCUMC Medical Director, and I offer non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment options that are done in our office. Some of the innovative solutions we offer include:
