does prostate surgery always cause urinary incontinence?

No: Depending on the type of prostate surgery performed, urianry incontinence and erectile dysfucntion can be side effects. Geberally, this is much more pronounced in radial surgery for prostate cancer than for surgery for benign disease. Urinary incontinence may be present but the degree of incontinence is variable. This can range to no leakage at all to complete incontinence.
