Incontinence to be Topic of ‘Doctors on Call’ Sept. 1

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  – While incontinence is not normally the sign of a major health problem, it can be inconvenient and embarrassing. More than 12 million Americans suffer from urinary incontinence and millions more suffer from an overactive bladder. Two West Virginia University experts will answer viewers’ questions about incontinence in a live presentation of  “Doctor’s on Call” at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, on West Virginia Public Television.

Stanley Zaslau, M.D., is a surgeon and a urologist at West Virginia University.  He received his medical degree from Hahnemann University in Pennsylvania and his specialty training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York.  His special interests include voiding and sexual dysfunction.     

Eddie Sze, M.D., is a urogynecologist at WVU. He received his medical degree from St. George's University School of Medicine, Maryland and his specialty training at State University of New York. His special interest is female urology.

“Doctors on Call,” with host Dr. Bob D'Alessandri, is a joint production of the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center at WVU (www.health.wvu.edu) and West Virginia Public Broadcasting (www.wvpubcast.org), a statewide network of radio, television, Internet and educational resources.    

This program is made possible with major support from Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Purdue Pharma. Other underwriters include The Health Plan, HealthSouth Mountainview Rehabilitation Hospital, and the Center for Organ Recovery and Education.
