Urinary incontinence is very common among women, especially those over age 60. In this podcast, Dr. Toby Chai, a urologist at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, discusses the difference between stress-related incontinence and urge incontinence.
In an interview with Bill Seiler, Dr. Chai, who is also a faculty member of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, talks about the diagnosis of incontinence and explores the variety of treatment options for incontinence – from simple changes in diet and exercise to medication and the latest surgical procedures.
Dr. Chai says that while medical treatment for incontinence can go a long way toward restoring a person’s quality of life, he understands why many people delay seeking help because of the embarrassment associated with incontinence.
