Fecal Incontinence

Fecal incontinence (FI) is the involuntary loss of stool that can occur both with and without rectal urge for bowel movement. This can have a devastating affect on a woman’s life. It can be caused by a loss of sphincter control or more often from problems with nerve signals.  It is common for women to have both urinary and fecal incontinence as well. The nerves that come from the sacral region control both the bowel and the bladder function.  These nerves also control most of the muscles that help maintain continence.

FI has many causes and does not discriminate based on age. In some women a sphincter surgery may be needed. However, there are less invasive procedures with much better success rates. Here at Pelvic Health Specialists we offer both Interstim neuromodulation and Solesta for treatment of fecal incontinence. Come see us and let us help you get back to living.
