Pediatric Incontinence

Incontinence is no longer a taboo subject to avoid or ignore. It is common, real and most of all, treatable. At Providence, we help your child gain control and have the comfort and confidence he or she wants and needs. Children can benefit from a full range of pediatric continence diagnostic and treatment services, provided by expert physicians and staff and supported by state-of-the-art equipment, including:

  • Urodynamics
  • Video urodynamics
  • Anorectal manometry
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation (a bowel and bladder retraining program)

Our pediatric continence specialists are trained to diagnose, evaluate and treat:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Urinary and bowel (fecal) incontinence
  • Voiding dysfunction and pelvic floor pain

Tips from the experts

Constipation in children often begins as young as age 2. To avoid it, parents should make sure kids eat high-fiber foods each day and drink plenty of water.

  • Enjoy plenty of fruits, like fresh raspberries and blackberries, as well as popcorn, tortillas, and high-fiber cereals and bars.
  • Avoid foods that increase constipation, like cheese, apples and peanut butter.
  • For pizza lovers, discourage plain cheese pizza and offer ones with veggie or fruit. A whole-wheat crust adds even more fiber.

Restoring control, comfort and confidence
