Bladder Health Program
Bladder disorders are common as we age. In fact, many people think they are normal and live with their condition even if it begins to limit their activities. But there is effective treatment for bladder disorders, and at Providence our specialists work with you to provide personalized care that addresses your unique condition.
The leaking of urine, or urinary incontinence, can be a problem, but not all types of leakage are treated the same way. In some individuals with pelvic organ prolapse, the bladder falls from its proper place in the pelvis, which can put individuals at increased risk for leakage, incomplete bladder emptying, and recurring infections.
