Incontinence Treatment

You have options. We can help.

When it comes to treating incontinence, our team of urologists are experts in helping you find relief. At Florida Medical Clinic, you’ll have a variety of incontinence treatment options to choose from, ranging from medications and behavioral therapy to lifestyle modifications.

Potential treatment options include bladder training, scheduled toilet trips, fluid and diet management, pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, and various medical inserts. And, while the majority of individuals significantly benefit from conservative therapies, our Urology Department also offers another option for those who experience persistent symptoms: InterStim. This implantable device works by sending small electrical pulses to the nerves that control bladder and bowel function.

InterStim is an FDA-approved bowel and bladder control device that is implanted beneath the skin. A thin wire carries small pulses to the sacral muscles and a hand-held patient programmer allows users to adjust the strength of the stimulation and turn the system on or off.

InterStim can be used to treat:

  • Constipation
  • Fecal Incontinence
  • Overactive Bladder (urinary urgency and frequency)
  • Urinary Retention

Individuals who use InterStim for incontinence treatment often note significant improvements in the number of episodes that they experience, as well as an improved quality of life. Many individuals find that they are able to resume normal daily activities they have been missing out on as a result of poor bladder and bowel control. And, unlike other forms of incontinence treatment, our urologists can determine if it is likely to produce the desired results prior to implantation during a simple, in-office simulation testing session.
