New Treatments for Incontinence in Women
Gynecologist offers program explaining options for bladder problems

Bladder control issues are a common problem, especially among older women.
 
Urinary incontinence refers to the accidental release of urine during normal activities of daily living. Many who have this condition assume it is part of aging, but there are many treatment options and the condition often can be cured.
 
Munson Medical Center gynecologist William Nowak, D.O., will present a program from 6 - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, to explain the different types of urinary incontinence as well as evaluation and treatment. He also will discuss new treatments for overactive bladder, including Interstim therapy.
 
Dr. Nowak is a board-certified gynecologist and his practice focuses on treating urogynecological conditions. He practices at Women’s Health Pavilion, 3990 E. M-72 in Acme.
 
The program is free and open to the public, however registration is requested. For more information and to register, call the Munson Community Health Library at (231) 935-9265. Munson Medical Center is located at 1105 Sixth St. in Traverse City.
