UAMS Hosts April 12 Seminar on Male Incontinence, Impotence

By todd

Incontinence and impotence can be side effects of many conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and prostate cancer. The seminar will offer information on the latest and most effective treatments for male stress incontinence and erectile dysfunction.

Delk, a professor of urology in the UAMS College of Medicine, is a board-certified urologist and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He also is a diplomate of the American Board of Urology with many years experience treating patients with incontinence and impotence.

“Living a Public Life with a Very Private Problem” is the title of the presentation by guest speaker Holt, who had to learn to cope with his condition while traveling as drummer for the group Kansas and performing on stage. After years of living with incontinence, he spoke to a doctor and learned of new treatment options. Today he has resumed regular activities from riding a bike to swimming as well as still playing in a band.

The seminar is free but space is limited. Refreshments will be served. To reserve a spot, call 501-686-8181.
