Continence clinic

Continence disorders are common in childhood. This group of disorders includes bedwetting (enuresis), daytime wetting and constipation which may be associated with leaking of stool. For example, bedwetting is very common and affects 10-20% of school aged children, falling to 1-3% of adolescents.

Continence disorders can lead to social difficulties, stopping children going to sleepovers or camps, and mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression.

While bedwetting usually resolves by itself, it doesn't always happen spontaneously and there are strategies to help this happen sooner. Understanding the nature of your child’s continence disorder is paramount to finding the correct treatment and increasing the chance of success.

Our continence specialist will:

  -

Perform a comprehensive assessment of your child’s continence disorder(s)

  -

Organise and perform appropriate investigations

  -

Prepare a comprehensive management plan

  -

Provide education and support

  -

Guide setting up and using the betwetting alarm and troubleshooting.
