About This Event

  • Event Type:Lectures & Special Events

It doesn’t take much to trigger a leaky bladder—simply exercising, sneezing, laughing or coughing can cause embarrassing urine leakage. This condition, called stress incontinence, is all too common and can strike at any age.

In fit young women, weakened pelvic floor muscles are often the culprit. For postmenopausal women, pelvic organ prolapse — an uncomfortable or painful condition linked to childbirth — can be the cause. Luckily, both stress incontinence and prolapse are highly treatable.

Come hear gynecologist Dr. Jeremiah McNamara describe new and effective treatments for these frustrating and uncomfortable conditions, including non-surgical and surgical options.
