Incontinence—the inability to control one’s bladder and bowels—can be emotionally challenging for children and their families, impacting home, school and extra-curricular activities. The Children’s Continence Program helps children develop or improve their continence. Our caring, experienced staff works with families to provide comprehensive care to meet the emotional and healthcare needs of children dealing with incontinence.
Children who come to the Children’s Continence Program at Riley at IU Health may have:
Riley at IU Health provides latest technology and advanced treatment options for children with incontinence. We are the only hospital in Indiana to offer flouro-urodynamics, a test that measures how the bladder stores and empties pee.
We also provide neuromuscular re-education or biofeedback, a noninvasive option that uses video games to help children with pelvic floor dysfunction and other voiding issues learn how to use the muscles that control the bladder.
Most children come to our program through a referral from a pediatrician or healthcare provider who provides a medical and treatment history for persistent incontinence.
At the first visit, staff talks with you and your child to review this history. If additional information is needed to make a diagnosis, an appointment is made for testing. Once we review your child’s history and tests are complete, we create an initial treatment plan for your child. This might include any of the following:
Incontinence can be an ongoing challenge, so our staff provides follow-up care for your child to assess the effectiveness of treatment and suggest additional testing and treatment options if needed.
