While incontinence affects all types of people, women experience incontinence – the loss of bladder or bowel control – twice as often as men. If an unexpected cough or sneeze, lifting a heavy object, or laughing too hard, sends you running to the nearest bathroom, you are not alone.
Catholic Health is sponsoring a free dinner program entitled, “Female Incontinence: What Are My Options?” from 5:30 to7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Millennium Hotel, 2040 Walden Ave., Cheektowaga.
Drs. Ali Ghomi and Dr. Dan Leberer, and women’s physical rehabilitation health expert Kathleen Aebischer, will lead a frank discussion about this very common, but rarely talked about, topic. Learn more about the surgical and non-surgical treatment options available to help better manage or eliminate incontinence , and get any questions you might have answered.
“Female Incontinence: What Are My Options?” is free and open to the public. A complimentary dinner will be served. Reservations are required by calling Catholic Health’s HealthConnection at 447-6205 or by registering online at www.chsbuffalo.org/events.
