Two options usually presented to patients for managing and treating chronic incontinence are surgery or medications. Lack of third-party payment for other noninvasive treatment options led to the development of a center to treat people with chronic incontinence/frequency who might not desire or need costly work-up by a urologist or gynecologist. It was hoped that by demonstrating the cost effectiveness of ancillary providers, procedures, and equipment, third-party payers would be more generous in their coverage.
