Don't Be Afraid to Talk About It
Only about 1 in 5 people with incontinence has seen a doctor about it. But those who seek help find that there are highly successful treatments and cures waiting for them. In fact, it is estimated that at least 80 percent of people who seek the care of a urologist see an improvement in their condition.
How Do I Find a Urologist?
To help you find a urologist in your area, the American Urological Association and American Foundation for Urological Disease have created a special database of member urologists who treat patients with urinary incontinence. This database is available on the Internet at www.drylife.org or by calling toll-free 1-877-DRY-LIFE (379-5433). You can also ask your primary care physician for a referral.
