There are many myths around incontinence. Some say it’s a natural part of aging. Some say nothing but surgery can fix it.
Both are UNTRUE.
While it is normal for changes to happen to your body as you age, incontinence doesn’t have to be one of those changes. But if it is, there are many treatment options that are considered well before surgery.
No matter the cause, age, number of childbirths, or illness, there are options.
If you are worried about leaking or urgency, take this quick test to help decipher the kind of incontinence you may be experiencing and some treatments that may be recommended for you.

  • Dr. Pettit,

    You performed a vasectomy reversal on my husband last November and said to keep you posted—We are expecting a baby girl in December. Thank you for being such an amazing part of our blessing! It was just about 4 months post-surgery that I became pregnant. We are so grateful and wanted to say thank you!

  • Today is my 76th birthday and second anniversary of my radical prostatectomy surgery, performed by Dr. John M. Pettit, for an aggressive Stage IV cancer that spread. I have been a patient of Dr. Pettit’s for two decades. He is a competent professional who always places first the health and welfare of his patients. My condition is terminal and was apparently not affected by radiation treatment. Dr. Pettit found an androgen-blocking drug that, for now, slows the progression of the cancer and gives me additional time… We are leaving next week for Turkey and the Greek Isles, making use of this time. Dr. Pettit keeps me fully informed and presents my options in easy-to-understand language. He is up-to-date in his field of Urology and has referred me to other specialists in oncology. I have placed my life in his hands and have no reservations about recommending that others do the same. He is competent, personable, and has a good attitude which also positively affects my outlook. You are in excellent hands as his patient.

  • Our family’s father and son came in to do a vasectomy and circumcision on the same day. Both were treated with so much care and compassion. The procedures went quickly and smoothly. What a helpful and friendly staff!

    From setting up the appointment to following up, our family felt confident that we were getting the best medical care we could hope for.

  • Dr. Pettit,

    I wanted to thank you for the radical prostatectomy you performed… Time will tell, but I believe you have handed me a few extra years by cutting out my aggressive cancer. We’ve known each other for years and I am remiss in not thanking you for your kind and good attitude. You are always there for me. Your efforts and abilities are most appreciated. I hardly know how to thank you, everything appears to be healing well.

  • Everyone was very nice to me and did an excellent job of keeping me calm during the procedure. If I had to do it again I would come here… I’m glad I don’t have to go through that again!

  • Dr. Pettit did my sons circumcision he was 5 days old. Dr. Pettit did amazing! My son healed in 6 days. The staff at the front desk are super friendly and helpful!

  • Doing good! In/Out in fast time. Took care of stones A.S.A.P.

  • We have always been treated well and appreciate the friendliness of all the staff.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Pettit’s for 5 years and have seen him on 2 different occasions during that time.  Dr. Pettit has always been welcoming, professional and helpful on providing direction and comfort in getting my medical challenges corrected and back on the road to recovery.  I have always found Dr. Pettit to be prompt and willing to listen to my concerns and ease my mind if I was worrying to much regarding what could be or couldn’t be found.  I appreciate Dr. Pettit’s knowledge and expertise.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Pettit’s for 12 years. His knowledge and professionalism are characteristics that I have grown to trust and find comfort in. The support staff, whether it be front desk employees or nurses, make me feel as though I am their priority during my visit. For that I am very grateful.

  • When coming to my husband’s first visit with Dr. Pettit we were both nervous. We did not know what to expect…while we were checking in the receptionist made us both feel welcome. As we sat and waited in the exam room to see Dr. Pettit, his nurse Jenny assisted us. She was very pleasant with us. She took her time with my husband and I could see him relaxing a little bit more. Dr. Pettit came in and spoke with us and told my husband his diagnosis and what other tests were to be done. Dr. Pettit was so kind, talked slowly so we could understand. He sat across from us, kept eye contact and explained everything. On check-out, the receptionist had to schedule CT scans…she handled everything so we didn’t have to worry about it ourselves. They are all so well-organized.

    We were so pleased to find such a good doctor.

    Thank You!
