Urinary incontinence – or the loss of bladder control – is a common but often embarrassing problem.
Dr. Jo Lynn Hawthorne of the Women’s Center of Greeneville will discuss urinary incontinence and the treatments that can correct it during a lecture Thursday, May 6, at 10 a.m. at the Roby Fitzgerald Adult Center, 203 N. College St.
A new Urodynamic machine at Takoma Regional Hospital is helping to better identify bladder function problems, Dr. Hawthorne said. “The good news is patients don’t have to live with incontinence,” she said. ““There are many simple techniques we can do at Takoma to significantly decrease or eliminate this problem.”
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Tina Chudina, media relations coordinator, at 798-8110.
This is the first in a series of lectures co-sponsored by Takoma and the Roby Center on the first Thursday of each month at 10 a.m.
