Did you know that millions of women experience involuntary loss of urine called urinary incontinence (UI)? It's not too uncommon. Some women may lose a few drops of urine while running or coughing. Others may feel a strong, sudden urge to urinate just before losing a large amount of urine. Many women experience both symptoms. UI can be slightly bothersome or totally debilitating. For some women, the risk of public embarrassment keeps them from enjoying many activities with their family and friends. Urine loss can also occur during sexual activity and cause tremendous emotional distress.
Manish Gopal, MD, a urogynecologist with Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick, will discuss urinary incontinence in women at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Saint Peter’s Adult Day Center, 200 Overlook Drive, Pondview Plaza, Monroe. Gopal will discuss new treatment options that are available for the treatment of female urinary incontinence, including robotic surgery using the da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System (the latest generation of da Vinci).
Registration is required. Please call 609-655-6853 to RSVP by Sept. 10. Light refreshments will be served.
