Urinary Incontinence

Half of all women experience urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. According to a study in the Journal of Urology, women are nearly four times as likely as men to have trouble controlling their bladders. And it’s not just a problem after menopause. Younger women often leak urine when they cough, laugh, or exercise.

Unfortunately, most of these women suffer in silence. You don’t have to.

David Almasy, MD, a specialist in obstetrics and gynecological surgery at CGH Medical Center, is proud to introduce a comprehensive diagnostic option for patients who suffer from urinary incontinence – Urodynamic Testing with the CooperSurgical Lumax™ TS Pro Fiberoptic Cystometry System.

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, contact Dr. Almasy’s office at 815-625-4790 to make an appointment. There is help for this problem.

  • Do you usually have a strong sense of urgency to urinate?
  • Do you have difficulty starting your urine stream?
  • Have you been treated for three or more urinary infections?
  • Do you lose urine while coughing, laughing, sneezing, lifting or running?
  • Does the loss of urine affect your life?
