Our Program Is Designed For You

Nearly 85% of the thirteen million Americans with incontinence are women, yet few actively seek medical help for their problem. The UCSF Women's Continence Center was established in 1991 in response to this need.

The clinic founders designed a comfortable, sensitive environment and a comprehensive array of services to help women with incontinence (urinary and fecal), urethral or bladder dysfunction, and pelvic floor support problems (prolapse).

In 2003 the UCSF Women’s Continence Center was recognized by the National Association for Continence (NAFC) as a Continence Care Champion, the first such award bestowed upon an outstanding clinic or institution.

The UCSF Women’s Continence Center is located in the Women’s Health Building at 2356 Sutter St., San Francisco, on the 5th floor.

In 2004, the UCSF Center for Pelvic Physiology was established for women and men with a variety bowel and bladder problems. This state of the art center provides innovative technology for comprehensive physiological testing by UCSF specialists. The UCSF Center for Pelvic Physiology is located at 2330 Post St. on the 2nd floor.

Our practice relies upon collaboration between health professionals of several medical specialties, including gynecology, urology, colorectal surgery and physical therapy. All Continence Center and Pelvic Physiology healthcare providers are specially trained in evaluating and treating women with incontinence, prolapse and bowel dysfunction . Each provider is committed to providing expert, timely, and innovative care.

Our services include a range of medical, surgical and behavioral therapies as well as social and emotional support. Incontinence is not normal, and we work with each woman to develop an individualized treatment and management plan.
