Many treatment options are available including:

  • Pelvic floor exercises. Beneficial in strengthing surrounding muscles and retraining the bladder. 
  • Urethral bulking agents
  • Minimally invasive sling surgery (link) – Synthetic slings have been designed to treat men with stress urinary incontinence particularly in milder cases This surgery involves taking either tissue from other parts of your body, or synthetic material or mesh, and making a sling around your urethra and the thick part of the muscle connecting the bladder to it (the bladder neck). This is helpful if you’re dealing with stress incontinence. The sling helps close your urethra when you put pressure on it -- like when you exercise, cough, or sneeze -- so urine won’t leak out.
  • An Artificial sphincter (the muscle that opens and closes your bladder) is one option for treating urinary incontinence if it’s caused by an enlarged prostate. A doctor puts a small, fluid-filled ring around your bladder neck. This helps keep your sphincter shut until it’s time for you to urinate. Once you have your artificial sphincter, you’ll have to press a valve under your skin when you go to the bathroom. This deflates it so urine can flow out of your bladder.
  • Prostate surgery. If an enlarged prostate is causing your urinary incontinence, your doctor may recommend surgery to reduce the size of your prostate.
