Female Continence Control Center: 201-894-3690
Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, affects between 10 and 20 million Americans. Half of the people who have this problem have never consulted a health professional because of the shame or embarrassment. This is especially tragic as 85 percent of incontinence sufferers can be successfully treated.
The Continence Control Center at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, the first of its kind in Northern New Jersey, provides a caring environment for men and women where the subject of incontinence can be discussed openly and where the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are available. Englewood is proud to be the first Medical Center in the tri-state area to offer Radiofrequency Bladder Neck Suspension to treat female incontinence.
Although men and women may suffer from urinary incontinence, women outnumber men two to one. Women may develop the problem without obvious predisposing factors, although it occurs most often in women who have had vaginal deliveries. Although incontinence is more common in older women, many younger ones also have this problem.
