Dr. Taylor specializes in the treatment of female bladder and bowel control problems.
You Are Not Alone
When you consider women of all ages, 1 in 6 have overactive bladder. Not only is it common, but it becomes more common as you age. By the age of 65, 1 in 3 women are suffering from overactive bladder. In fact, more people have overactive bladder than have asthma or diabetes!
Types of Incontinence
Not all bladder control problems are the same. There are two common types that we treat, stress incontinence and overactive bladder (OAB). Learn more about the different kinds of incontinence and how treatment differs for each one.
The most common bladder control problem we treat is an overactive bladder. Unlike stress incontinence, OAB has little to do with a loss of support. Learn more about overactive bladder symptoms, causes, and treatments and how Dr. Taylor and his team can help you today.
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Stress incontinence is leaking when you sneeze, cough, laugh, or do some type of physical activity like exercising, lifting, or climbing stairs. It’s usually caused by weakened or damaged pelvic floor muscles that create a loss of support for the bladder. Learn more about stress urinary incontinence and how Dr. Taylor can help.
About 25% of the women we see for bladder control problems also suffer from bowel issues. Some of them have accidents because they can’t make it in time, and some because they don’t even know they had to go. An inability to control your bowels can lead to embarrassment, depression, and a lower quality of life.
