There are many non-surgical solutions that you may not know of! At our state-of-the-art bladder control center, we utilize a comprehensive team approach to not only diagnose and treat but also to help educate women on treating this common problem. At PCUMC, Dr. Pugach and I spend time with our patients to review their medical history and voiding patterns (bladder diary), test their bladder function and review all treatments that are available for bladder control using a pathway that we have developed together. At the end of the discussion, we help you decide what the best solution is for you. (View Patient Testimonials)
