Pelvic Stimulation Therapy for Women

Dr. Holly L. Thacker discusses incontinence treatments with the 11th Hour on AM1420

Bladder leakage is one of many health-related issues Dr. Holly L. Thacker of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Specialized Women's Health addresses in this interview.

Dr. Thacker explains that there is non-surgical therapy available to help remedy the problem, and that there is an unexpected, but not unwelcome side effect of the newly FDA approved pelvic stimulation devices now available to strengthen the pelvic floor or relax an overactive bladder.

Dr. Thacker is the author of Cleveland Clinic Guide to Menopause and Women's Health: Your Body, Your Hormones, Your Choices. She is also Executive Director of Speaking of Women's Health, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating women on health, safety and well being.
