Avoiding the Waterworks

Childbirth and active lifestyles can weaken the pelvic muscles that support the bladder to the point that urinary stress incontinence becomes a problem. If coughing, sneezing, laughing, or other sudden movements start your "water works," join Dr. William Groves, a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, for Avoiding the Waterworks, a free seminar on possible treatment options, including a minimally invasive sling procedure.

A Lake Charles native, Dr. Groves graduated from McNeese State University and the Louisiana State University Health Science Center School of Medicine in Shreveport. He completed his residency at Texas A&M Health Sciences Center, Scott and White, in Temple, Texas before returning to the lake area.

Avoiding the Waterworks will be held Friday, May 27 at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. A light lunch will be served, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
