Baptist Health Urologist to Host Free Men’s Health Talk

FORT SMITH, Ark. –  This month, John D. Terrell, MD, a urologist at Baptist Health Urology Clinic-Fort Smith, will host a free virtual seminar on men’s pelvic health, including urinary incontinence.

Urinary incontinence (UI) is leaking of urine that you can’t control. While it’s a condition that’s more often talked about among women, men can also suffer from bladder leakage. In men, UI can be caused by prostate cancer surgery, neurologic disorders, enlarged prostate surgery, radiation and pelvic trauma. 

Approximately 500,000 men worldwide suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI or bladder leakage). It can be humiliating and uncomfortable when you leak urine during coughing, sneezing or exertion. It’s not just a medical problem. It can affect emotional, psychological and social life. But there are effective treatment options for stress urinary incontinence, some of which are covered by insurance.

Dr. Terrell will discuss those options during the virtual seminar Thursday, April 11, at 6 p.m. Those who register will be able to anonymously tune in live and ask questions privately. Use this link to register:
