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

  • The evidence based guidelines that guide assessment and treatment for stress urinary incontinence
  • The recommended first line treatments
  • The benefits of pelvic floor physiotherapy
  • The recommended course of action when physiotherapy isn’t enough
  • Tests a urologist may recommend
  • Non surgical options
  • Surgical options, the risks and outcomes
  • Does our health care system follow the recommendations for assessment and treatment
  • Current research being done in the field

Dr. Jennifer Locke is a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada certified Urologist with subspecialty training in reconstructive urology (female urology, male urology, neurogenic bladder, overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, urethral stricture disease).

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. She completed her residency training in urology at the University of British Columbia followed by her fellowship training in reconstructive urology at the University of Toronto.

Her current clinical practice is based out of Kelowna and consists of a mixture of general urology and reconstructive urology. Operating out of the Kelowna General Hospital she serves the greater Okanagan region and beyond.
