Surgical Treatments

Surgical treatments for stress incontinence include:

Burch retropubic urethropexy - Procedure done through an abdominal incision or through a laparoscope to resupport the bladder base by placing sutures in the vagina to attach it to a ligament on the pubic bone.

Suburethral sling - Placing a "strap" of material under the urethra to support it and prevent stress incontinence. The sling material can be synthetic or natural. The natural material can be taken from your own body or from cadavers.

Periurethral injections - Injection of material next to the opening of the bladder in an effort to prevent stress incontinence; this procedure is performed in the office.

Tension-free vaginal tape-type-sling - A special type of suburethral sling that requires a less invasive procedure; this allows it to be performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Suprapubic catheter - A catheter placed into the bladder through the abdomen - it is used to drain the bladder after surgery.

Neuromodulation - This is a new approach in the treatment of the overactive bladder, urinary retention and urinary frequency. Electrodes are surgically inserted into the nerves that control the bladder.
