LUC Centre (Lady Urinary Centre)

Female Urinary Incontinence (FUI) is often experienced by women in their menopausal years. Surveys have found that as many as 47% of women in this stage of life experience urinary incontinence problems of one kind or another.   Although the condition is not life threatening, there are many negative impacts from inconstancy and it does affect an individual’s quality of life in the long term.  This is particularly true from a social and working standpoint and can lead to low self-confidence and personality disorders.  Urinary Incontinence in the elderly, who need love and attention, can annoy family members and discourage them from caring, causing the elderly to feel depressed and isolated.

Many people believe FUI is only experienced by elderly women and that it cannot be treated and cured. This is not the case.  Diagnosis and treatment by specialists in Urogynaecology (Female Urology) in collaboration with other  medical experts such as Obstetricians and Gyneyecologists, Urological Surgeons, Colon and Rectum Surgeons, General Doctors and Physiatrists can provide comprehensive care for patients and help them to have a much better quality of life.
