At Medical Skin Clinic, we have treatment for Incontinence in Geelong. We tend to study the actual cause of the condition and then custom make the treatment. Stress in continence is caused due to weakling of the pelvis muscles however in case of urge incontinence it is caused due to over activity of muscles.

Following are few of the reason why this could happen

• – Pregnancy and vaginal birth • – Obesity • – Family history of incontinence • – Increasing age • – Prostate problems and prostate surgery Our team of professionals makes sure to discuss the patient’s condition and hence provide assessment with the help of ultrasound and various examinations. There are both non-surgical methods as well as surgical methods available. Our team of specialist always try to cure the problem first with the use of non-surgical methods which include lifestyle change, dietcontrol, meditation and medication, and but pelvic floor muscles. If the condition does not improve then there is an alternative of surgical procedures such as transobturator tape procedure (TOT) and retro pubic tape procedure or tension-free vaginal tape procedure (TVT) for stress Incontinence and an open colposuspensiona laparoscopic (‘keyhole’) colposuspension for urge Incontinence in Geelong.
