Seeking Treatment: Who Can Treat Incontinence?

The first step in your treatment journey is to discuss your condition with the right doctor or urologist. There are several healthcare professionals that can provide assistance when seeking treatment for urinary incontinence:

  • A General Practitioner (GP) can diagnose and treat some forms of incontinence and can refer onto another professional that specialises in treating incontinence.
  • Physiotherapists with an interest in continence care can offer support and provide a treatment plan or exercise program that will help to strengthen the muscles that may control the urination process.
  • A Urologist is a specialist that focuses on diseases of the male and female urinary tract systems, as well as the male reproductive organs.
  • A Prosthetic Urologist is a specialist with additional training specific to men’s health, specialising in all treatment options, including the surgical and long-term treatment options to restore bladder control.
