Specialized Treatment for Incontinence
The specialists at the Sutter Tracy Wound Ostomy Continence Center offer a broad range of treatments to help relieve the symptoms of fecal (bowel) and urinary incontinence, a problem affecting millions of Americans, including up to 30 percent of women over age 40. The modern, state-of-the-art facility is the only one of its kind in San Joaquin County.
Our highly trained specialists use the latest equipment, such as Video Urodynamics, to diagnosis incontinence and offer a variety of effective treatments. Experienced professionals, they understand the psychological and emotional impact incontinence can have on your life. They are here to help you and will address your concerns and questions with sensitivity and compassion.
Many people find that their symptoms decrease or disappear after learning some simple techniques they can do at home. When surgery is called for, many procedures can be done on an outpatient basis.
- Bladder training, biofeedback and electrical stimulation
- Surgery, including pelvic floor reconstruction and urethral slings
- The Medtronic Interstim Therapy device to regulate urinary function
Help for Loved Ones
If you have a loved one who suffers from incontinence, ask about our Prompted Voiding Training program. The program can teach you how to help an invalid family member get to the bathroom and void. With proper training, you may be able to provide the help your loved one needs to be cared for at home instead of in a nursing facility.
