Fecal Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Bowel Incontinence
Bowel Incontinence affects at least 10% of the population, most of them women. It is the loss of the ability to control your own bowel movements. Many do not seek treatment because they find the disease emabarassing and believe there is nothing that can be done. However, it is a very treatable disease and can either be completely cured or greatly improved, allowing you to get back to your own life, worry free.

Passive Fecal Incontinence: If a person's sphincter muscle is not functioning properly, the person may pass stool and not even realize it.

Urge Incontinence: Caused by disease in the rectum. The person may involuntarily pass stool through a normal sphincter muscle.

Several studies are performed in the study of fecal incontinence, including endorectal utrasonography, lower endoscopy, and defecography. Your physician will determine the best study for you during the consultation.
