Dr. Dean Elterman MD, MSc, FRCSC Urologist discusses Contino®, a new technology to deal with Male incontinence

What is Local Urologist

A local urologist is a medical doctor who specializes in health conditions that affect the urinary tract (kidneys, bladder and ureters) in men, women and children. A local urologist also diagnoses and treats diseases that affect the reproductive system. Some of the conditions a local urologist might treat include kidney stones, Peyronie's disease, urinary tract infections (UTIs), prostate cancer, erectile dysfunction (ED), low pelvic organ prolapse and bedwetting. If your local family physician thinks that you may benefit from seeing a local urologist, they can refer you.

Some of the tools a local urologist may use to diagnose conditions include urine tests; CT scan; MRI scan; ultrasound imaging; cystoscopy, which uses a cystoscope to look at the bladder and urethra; ureteroscopy, which looks inside the ureters and kidneys; and prostate biopsy, which involves taking a small tissue sample. Depending on the diagnosis, a local urologist may perform or refer patients for antibiotics, medication, radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and/or lifestyle changes. The Contino Patient Support Program centers around you and pairs you with a Contino Nurse throughout your journey. Your Contino nurse is just a phone call away.  

If you are concerned about male incontinence, a local urologist can also help. Male incontinence can be a result of various medical conditions, including diabetes, an enlarged prostate or an overactive bladder. Fortunately, there are many solutions for male incontinence, including seeing a local urologist for treatment options and using a product such as Contino®. In addition to male incontinence products like Contino®, there are also men's underwear and pads that can control urine leakage and prevent odors. Some men also find that doing Kegel exercises and avoiding coffee or alcohol before bed helps male incontinence. If you’d like more information about how a local urologist can help you, including how Contino® might be the right product for your male incontinence or overactive bladder, start a conversation with your local family physician. 

Talk to your local family physician for more information. Whether you have low testosterone or a bladder infection, start by talking to your local family physician for a referral to a local urologist.
