Expertise and rankings

Mayo Clinic's experts in stress incontinence treat almost 2,700 people with the condition each year.

  • Training and experience. Mayo Clinic doctors who specialize in urinary incontinence have extra training in bladder and urinary function and, in many cases, see only people with incontinence. As a result, they have extensive expertise in treating urinary incontinence, including fixing treatments done elsewhere that have failed.
  • Teamwork. Because of their experience and Mayo Clinic's extensive system, Mayo Clinic specialists are able to quickly and efficiently diagnose your problem and offer treatment. It's not uncommon to have an evaluation one day and corrective surgery the next, if that's what you want. If other medical problems are identified during an evaluation, an appointment can be quickly arranged with another doctor who specializes in that condition.
  • Research expertise. As Mayo Clinic is a research institution, Mayo Clinic doctors are continually studying how to improve the diagnosis and treatment of incontinence. You benefit from those treated previously, and your treatment contributes to knowledge for the future.
