Urinary Incontinence in Jacksonville, Florida
Whether you suffer from stress incontinence (leakage when sneezing, coughing, or straining) or urge incontinence (the frequent need to urinate and leakage), or another type of problem, River City OBGYN offers diagnosis and treatment of urinary dysfunction problems and overactive bladder. Stress Incontinence is most often associated with weakened pelvic floor muscles due to pregnancy, aging, or childbirth. This type of incontinence can usually be effectively treated in its early stages through pelvic floor exercises (Kegels), but more advanced cases require surgical intervention. Urethral slings are the most common surgical treatment using a special transvaginal tape (TVT), and usually only requires a few days of recovery time.
Also known as overactive bladder, this type of incontinence can often be due to lack of estrogen and/or weakened muscles and may be resolved through pelvic floor exercises (Kegels) and, in some cases, prescription medication.
It is not uncommon for women to experience symptoms of incontinence related to more than one cause. We will work with you to find the right combination of treatments.
Intrisic Sphincter Disorder:
This condition is a loss of urine not associated with the urge to urinate, and can occur at times with just simple bodily movements. Generally a sling is required to correct this type of incontinence.
Our nursing staff can performs thorough urodynamic testing to identify the exact type of incontinence you are experiencing. The physician will use these results to help prescribe the right course of treatment for you to restore normal urinary function.
I have been with Dr. Garcia and this office for over 34 years and I love this office and the staff, everyone is so kind. Jan Ely is awesome and is always concerned about how I have been doing and she remembers my issues from last time. Dr. Wells is really nice too. Love this office man, not going anywhere.
I love the staff of river city. My whole pregnancy went smoothly with these great people. Kendra Gillespie is a gem of a person, she treated me so well with all the complications I had. The sonography lady gave a detailed explanation of the baby parts. I loved both of them…On delivery day Gillespie took utmost care of me even when it’s 10:30 pm in the night and nurses in Baptist helped me for safe delivery. I would recommend this place for people who are expecting babies❤️
My sincere thanks to doctor Gillespie.
I took my elderly neighbor to this office, they were all kind to her and treated her kindly. They were amazing and work with you to make sure your appointment time works for you a well as them and they don’t leave you sitting there like many doctors office’s do. I will definitely recommend them during these unsettling times.
