It is estimated that nearly 25 percent of females and 5 percent of males between 15 and 64 live with undiagnosed incontinence. However, recent studies could point to the actual numbers being much higher since many people never seek help. It is our experience that most people who do eventually seek treatment have been living with the condition for years.
Most patients do not report incontinence because they are embarrassed about their condition and they have low expectations that anything can be done about it. They lack information regarding treatment options and success rates.

Women with rectal, uterine or vaginal prolapse may require pelvic reconstructive surgery. Common pelvic procedures include:
