What is Urinary Incontinence? It is the accidental release of urine. It can happen when you cough, laugh sneeze, or run/jog. Or you may have a sudden need to go to the bathroom but cannot get there in time. Urinary control problems are very common, especially in older adults. 

A leaky bladder doesn't have to be a big deal. Dr. Chris Jones provides Urinary Incontinence treatments both surgical and non-surgical.
