Show Notes

In this episode, I sit down with urologist Dr. Jennifer Locke to discuss:

  • the relationship between the brain, bladder and pelvic floor
  • what the research suggests as the first line of defence for treating overactive bladder
  • how medications may/may not help
  • when is surgery warranted
  • the role of your family doctor, urologist and physiotherapist in treatment

Dr. Locke grew up in Tsawwassen, British Columbia and attended the University of British Columbia for her undergraduate degree in chemistry. She then completed a PhD in experimental medicine at the University of British Columbia followed by her MD training at the University of Toronto.
