Urinary incontinence and overactive bladder are growing healthcare problems that are often unreported due to embarrassment and the myth that urinary in continence is a normal part of aging and that there is nothing besides surgery that can be done to treat it. During this session, we discuss the different types of incontinence, patient evaluation, and treatment options available. Urinary incontinence is not life threatening, it is life-style threatening.
