Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2023
Time: 6:00 PM Eastern Time
Urinary incontinence, or the unwanted loss of urinary control, is often temporary and results from an underlying medical condition. Overactive bladder (OAB) is a type of bladder control problem and includes symptoms such as a sudden, overwhelming urge to urinate, frequent urination, leakage, and having to urinate excessively during the night.
Without treatment, urinary incontinence and OAB can negatively affect a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, many new medical therapies and minimally invasive procedures are available to regain bladder control.
