Service Spotlight: Incontinence
“Involuntary loss of urine is a common problem for many women. There are several types of urinary incontinence; each with its own cause and treatment options. Unfortunately, incontinence is not a problem that gets better with time. The good news is the vast majority of women can now be helped with this debilitating problem.” – Dr. Michael Cady, OBGYN specialist
Our Trusted Team for Women’s Health & Gynecology
At Riverwood Healthcare, patients have access to a team of three highly skilled OB/GYN physicians and surgeons with the Minnesota Center for Obstetrics & Gynecology who serve women’s health needs from adolescence through postmenopausal years. A nurse midwife offers another option for primary care, annual well woman exams, preventive healthcare and counseling, gynecologic issues, and menopause.
Our Women’s Health Surgical Specialties
What sets our team of gynecologists apart as regional experts is their high degree of laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgical skills combined with a compassionate approach to women’s health concerns, such as pelvic pain or urinary incontinence. For example, they perform 99 percent of hysterectomies with a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure. They also offer an innovative, high-tech procedure called InterStim to treat urinary urge incontinence or fecal incontinence. Similar to a pacemaker, an implanted device uses electrical pulses to stimulate the sacral nerves that control the bladder and muscles related to the urinary function.
