What is fecal incontinence, and why does it occur?

Fecal incontinence is the inability to control the passage of gas or stool. It can be a debilitating condition severely affecting one’s quality of life..

There can be a number of causes, with pelvic nerve and muscle injury during childbirth being the most common. Though more common in women, it can also affect men and even children.

Can fecal incontinence be treated?

Treatment for fecal incontinence has steadily improved over the last several years.  There has been a progressive transition from invasive surgical reconstruction to novel minimally invasive techniques to help improve bowel function.

All treatment options are provided to patients and great care is taken to identify the root of the problem so that the best treatment can be implemented.

What are the treatment options?

We utilize proven non-invasive options and surgical techniques to improve function.
These include:

Sacral Nerve Modulation Sphincteroplasty Perineal reconstruction
Solesta injection Rectovaginal fistula repair Rectal prolapse repair
Rectocele repair Dietary modification Pelvic floor rehabilitation and biofeedback
Prolapsing hemorrhoid repair Medication and supplementation Skin care

We work closely with ProRehab and other expert physical therapists throughout the tri-state.
