Incontinence in children refers to the lack of controlling passage of urine. It may present as a child unable to be fully potty trained, or it may occur in a child that previously had bladder control. Dr Thiebaut will do a thorough physical examination, and ask you a series of questions about your child’s development. Special radiological investigations may also be required to exclude any anatomical causes for the incontinence. Treatment of urinary incontinence in children is complex and often may involve behaviour modification, medical therapy and occasionally surgery.
