URINARY INCONTINENCE (UI) negatively affects one’s ability to control their bladder, causing embarrassment and impacts negatively on both their professional and social well being. If coughing, laughing, sneezing and physical activity cause you to leak urine, you may be suffering from Urinary or Stress Incontinence. This type of bladder problem is common and is often related to physical changes resulting from childbirth, age in men, pregnancy, and menopause in women.

The first step towards relief from bladder problems is to have an assessment. Dr Oluoch Onyango – Urologist, and his team are dedicated to giving you the most advanced and up-to-date treatment options available. Prior to any procedure, all patients are examined to ensure there are no underlying medical problems. We understand the impact urinary incontinence can have on an individual. For this reason, we offer a range of medical solutions that can resolve UI effectively, including surgery and medication.

Types of urinary incontinence we treat include:
• Stress incontinence. Urine leaks when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
• Urge incontinence. You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often, including throughout the night. Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition, such as infection, or a more severe condition such as a neurological disorder or diabetes.
• Overflow incontinence. You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn't empty completely.
• Functional incontinence. A physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time. For example, if you have severe arthritis, you may not be able to unbutton your pants quickly enough.
• Mixed incontinence. You experience more than one type of urinary incontinence — most often this refers to a combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.

Feel comfortable to discuss incontinence with Dr Onyango Oluoch – Urologist, as it may:
• Cause you to restrict your activities and limit your social interactions
• Negatively impact your quality of life
• Increase the risk of falls in older adults as they rush to the toilet
• Indicate a more serious underlying condition
