Common Female Incontinence Conditions:

  • Urge Incontinence: the inability to hold urine long enough to reach a restroom. This is often made worse by medical conditions such as diabetes or hypertension
  • Stress Incontinence: the most common type of incontinence which is characterized by leakage of urine during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting heavy objects, or any other body movement that puts pressure on the bladder
  • Functional Incontinence: leakage due to a mental or physical condition that interferes with timely and efficient toileting
  • Overflow Incontinence: leakage that occurs as urine spills from a bladder filled beyond capacity

Minimally Invasive Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery:

  • Stress Incontinence: One highly effective treatment is known as the “sling procedure.” This procedure is performed in approximately 30 minutes at the Amdur Ambulatory Care Center at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. There are minimal post-operative restrictions, allowing a quick return to work.
  • Urge Incontinence: Sacral neuromodulation is a therapy option involving the use of a FDA-approved device for urgency, frequency and urge incontinence. The first phase of this therapy can be completed right in the office. It is a unique approach and does not require the inconvenience or side effects of drugs.
  • Fecal Incontinence: Interstim® Therapy is an FDA-approved neurostimulation therapy proven to improve or restore bowel control to help you enhance your quality of life. Learn More.
