Fecal incontinence is a relatively common condition that can be very distressing. Incontinence can be caused by many different problems: a defect in the sphincter muscle, nerve damage, loss of storage capacity of the rectum or rapid colonic transit.
Colon and Rectal Surgeons of Kansas City have a state of the art rectal physiology lab, to determine the cause of the problem in order to obtain a more focused and proper approach to treatment.
These modalities help us identify problems of incontinence or obstructive defecation.
These tests are painless and are not time consuming.
We have available non-surgical modalities, such as sphincter and pelvic floor physical therapy and biofeedback.
