Urinary Incontinence - DRHC Dubai Urology clinic

Urinary incontinence is a condition where the patient is unable to control his/her urination. It affects men, women, and children. Most of the patients are embarrassed about their condition, but in the last few years, many of them have been seeking treatment.

In case it affects your lifestyle, please get proper medical advice as soon as possible. We offer many options of treatment (medicine, pelvic training, surgery) to each patient after doing a proper investigation and diagnosis.
