Straight Talk About Bothersome Bladders with A. Lenore Ackerman, PhD, MD
The majority of older adults - women and men - have some kind of bladder complaint. Being in the majority shouldn’t be a source of shame. It should be a call for action. Dr. A. Lenore Ackerman of UCLA Health will identify some simple steps and other options that can offer real improvement.
Dr. Ackerman has a particular interest in geriatric urology and specializes in the treatment of men and women with incontinence, voiding dysfunction, and pelvic floor disorders. She earned a PhD in Immunology and then an MD at Yale and completed her training in General Surgery and Urology at the University of California at Los Angeles. She is Director of Research for the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at UCLA Health.
