What kind of doctor should I have my parent see about their incontinence?
When it comes to incontinence, choosing the right doctor or healthcare provider can make a big difference. Start by getting in touch with the individual's primary physician. Then follow up with any other healthcare providers they recommend, which may include the following:
Urologist: A doctor who focuses on the treatment of disorders of the urinary system.
Continence Nurse: A specialist who supports patients with bladder or bowel issues.
Physical Therapist: A professional who helps patients rebuild control over pelvic muscles to help prevent incontinence.
Reaching out is the first step to helping someone you care about feel healthier and more comfortable.
