Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary loss of urine from the bladder. During his more than 35 years of medical practice, Dr. Gordon M. Castleberry has treated patients with each of the various types of incontinence – stress, urge, mixed, overflow and functional. Correct diagnosis of the type of incontinence is the first and most important step in developing an appropriate and effective treatment plan.
It’s estimated that approximately 10 to 20 million people suffer from urinary incontinence, and nearly 50 percent of the institutionalized elderly are incontinent. About half of incontinent patients do not alert their physician or family members of their problem; most assume nothing can be done for incontinence or feel that leakage is a normal part of aging.
