Bowel urgency and incontinence are common gastrointestinal symptoms. Unfortunately, patients are hesitant to relate such symptoms because of embarrassment, but the symptoms can have a significant impact on quality of life. At Gateway we are happy to discuss these symptoms and provide options to hopefully improve our patient’s quality of life.
With that said we now offer in-office anorectal manometry to assess for pelvic floor dysfunction, dyssenergic defecation, bowel urgency, incontinence, etc. Discuss symptoms with your Gateway physician to determine if anorectal manometry evaluation may be appropriate.
