Many treatment options are available for male incontinence. These include pharmaceutical, behavioral and surgical interventions.​


Incontinence can limit your activities; keep you homebound in costly, messy pads, dealing with the frustration and embarrassment, and the constant fear of leaking and odor. The reality is, you don’t have to live with bladder control problems anymore.

Our practice specializes in real solutions, from minimally invasive surgical procedures like the male sling for mild to moderate incontinence, to the artificial urinary sphincter implant that can help resolve even severe incontinence.
