A large percentage of women will have problems with incontinence or prolapse. But they do not talk about it, so they think they’re alone. Many will wait 5-7 years before they feel comfortable talking with their doctor about one of these problems. By the time they come into our clinic, patients have been dealing with issues for a long time. We have a wide range of treatment options to help improve women’s quality of life.
