Anesthesia

Controlling and holding urine

Question:

My mother is 75 years old. Recently she cannot control her urine. Is there a surgery to help her to have more control over urination?

It all depends what kind of urinary incontinence she has. Most likely her condition is treatable by medication if she has overactive bladder. Surgery is designed to correct stress urinary incontinence. See your urologist for more information.
