Urinary incontinence refers to any involuntary leakage of urine, whether that be every time you cough, laugh or exercise. Incontinence can affect all aspects of life, from work and socializing to sexual intimacy and function. If you suspect you have trouble controlling the urge to urinate, it’s important to understand what the cause may be and seek options for treatment.

At Aguirre Specialty Care, we can help you reclaim your quality of life with proven surgical and non-surgical treatment solutions for urinary incontinence. Before we explore your options, let’s look at how and why bladder leakage impacts nearly a third of U.S. adults:


Incontinence manifests in a variety of different symptoms and may be a sign of another condition. We can effectively treat all types of urinary incontinence with a treatment tailored to your exact needs. The four most common types of incontinence are:

  • Stress incontinence: Leakage due to physical activity such as coughing, sneezing, exercising or laughing.
  • Urge incontinence: The sudden and intense urge to urinate which may result in leakage.
  • Mixed incontinence: A combination of stress and urge incontinence.
  • Overflow incontinence: Leakage due to a full bladder that you can’t fully empty.


Incontinence occurs when the muscles holding in urine or supporting your bladder weaken to the point where urine leaks out. Due in part to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles that occurs during pregnancy and childbirth, women are more likely than men to develop incontinence. A decrease in estrogen after menopause can also weaken pelvic muscles and lead to bladder control loss. Other common causes of incontinence for both men and women include aging and a blockage in the urinary tract.


There are things you can do at home, like Kegel exercises, that can help strengthen the pelvic floor and give you a starting point to help control your incontinence. But, if you find you need a more advanced solution to improve the state of your concerns, we proudly offer the following non-surgical and surgical treatments to address your exact needs:
