Millions of women are dealing with a condition that they may be too embarrassed to bring up with friends, family, or even their doctor – bladder leakage. What you may not realize is this is a real medical condition known as urinary incontinence, affecting 1 in 4 women across various ages. If you’ve ever experienced leakage when you exercise or have difficulty making it to the bathroom, you may be suffering from incontinence. Whether leakage happens as you age, after childbirth, or during activity, taking control of your bladder health can drastically improve your quality of life.
In this informative webinar devoted to understanding bladder health and how to overcome urinary incontinence, Dr. Vincente Lucente of Axia Women’s Health – Institute for Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery focuses not only the treatment of common urogynecology conditions, but also on the research-backed treatments that support recovery, and takes time to address some common myths and questions surrounding bladder health.
Vincent R. Lucente, MD, MBA, FACOG, is Medical Director of the Institute for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery and FPM Urogynecology Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Chief of Gynecology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Dr. Lucente is an internally recognized physician and surgeon, who is passionate about research and education of pelvic health conditions.
“Perhaps the most significant reason, one which has only grown over the years, is the impact I am able to make in improving the quality of someone’s life. I am most fulfilled when I see the smiling face of a patient who no longer needs to wear an absorbent pad or worry about wetness or odors.”
“This was EXCELLENT! I couldn’t make the live session but the presentation and Q&A addressed 100% of my questions. I’m 72 and I currently take Myrbetriq and initially experienced an immediate change. But now I may need to go the next step. Dr. Lucente explained things so well! I feel empowered and can’t wait for my next OBGYN appointment. Thank you!”
