Durham Regional Hospital offers treatment for male urologic conditions including incontinence and urinary difficulties caused by enlarged prostate.
Treatment options for male incontinence include:
- Male sling: A procedure to give support to the urethra by suspending mesh from the wall of the pelvis in men after prostate surgery.
- Artificial urinary sphincter: A procedure to place a cuff around the urethra in men who are incontinent after prostate surgery.
Many men suffer from urinary difficulties brought about by an enlarged prostate.
In its mildest form, lower urinary tract symptoms can include a frequent urge to urinate or waking up at night. More advanced disease can cause urinary incontinence, bladder stones, urinary tract infections, and a dependence on a catheter.
The urologists at Durham Regional Hospital are capable of treating these conditions with the most up-to-date technology. Minimally invasive procedures include the latest in technology for transurethral removal of the prostate and laser vaporization.
Our urologists are also trained in the non-surgical treatment of prostate enlargement and urinary obstruction.
