Stress Incontinence Clinic

Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, Dr. Martin R. Curlik, urologist and Heidi Harmon, FNP welcome you to the new Stress Incontinence Clinic at Maine Coast Urology. Many people may have urinary incontinence that can improve with treatment but are afraid to mention their problem. All types of urinary incontinence are treatable at all ages. You need not be embarrassed by incontinence.

Women experience urinary incontinence (UI) twice as often as men. Pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and the structure of the female urinary tract account for this difference. But both women and men can become incontinent from neurologic injury, birth defects, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and physical problems associated with aging.

The urology providers will physically examine you for signs of medical conditions causing incontinence. To diagnose the problem, they will first ask about symptoms and medical history. You pattern of voiding and urine leakage may suggest the type of incontinence you have. Often, you can begin treatment at the first medical visit.

Dr. Curlik, Heidi Harmon, FNP, and the team at Maine Coast Urology are ready to answer your questions, discuss your options and get you on the road to a better, less stressful lifestyle. Please have your primary care doctor contact Maine Coast Urology at 207-664-5455 and schedule a consultation today! RSS
