Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Does biofeedback reduce incontinence after prostate surgery?

    Radical prostatectomy is an operation to remove the prostate gland and some of the tissue around it. It is done to treat prostate cancer, and up to half of all men who have a radical prostatectomy develop urinary incontinence.

    Preoperative pelvic floor training (PFT) is used to strengthen the muscles and improve recovery of continence following the operation.

    Does adding biofeedback help?


    Among 90 men who got PFT with and without biofeedback training, there was no significant difference in the return of urinary control at 1, 3, and 6 months post surgery.
