Surgery for urinary, or bladder, leaking is a very effective and long-lasting solution for some women. At the Center for Urinary and Pelvic Health, we use the latest surgical approaches with and without robotics to treat urinary incontinence.

Our clinic is unique in the state in that our GYN surgery team includes two doctors who are fellowship trained in minimally invasive surgery techniques. That’s experience you can count on.

Following an urogynecologic evaluation, our GYN team works with you to determine the best surgery options for you and creates a plan to get you back to your life, worry-free.

Incontinence, or bladder leakage surgery options include:

  • Mid-urethral sling
  • Anterior repair, with or without a graft
  • Posterior repair, with or without a graft

At the Center for Urinary and Pelvic Health, we use the latest surgical treatments to treat various types incontinence. Following an urogynecologic evaluation, our team works with you to create a care plan, determine the best options for you, and carefully evaluate your progress over time. Some options include:

Mid-urethral Sling
A “minimally invasive” surgery performed in an operating room in which a small “sling” or supportive material is put under the urethra. This helps to prevent leaking by limiting movement caused by straining.

Anterior Repairs (with or without a graft)
Urinary leaking may be caused by vaginal prolapse or pelvic organ prolapse where organs such as the uterus, cervix or the bladder begin to bulge through the vagina. An anterior repair surgery helps to repair the wall between the bladder and the vagina. A “graft” made of pliable material may be recommended to help strengthen the wall and provide support for the pelvic floor muscles, reducing urinary leaking.

Posterior Repair (with or without a graft)
Urinary leaking may be caused by weakness in the wall between the vagina and the rectum. A “graft” can be used to strengthen the wall and provide support for the pelvic floor muscles. Graft options might include a pliable material or your own tissues.

Colposacropexy
Vaginal prolapse can lead to urinary leaking. This surgical treatment helps to repair the prolapse and reduce symptoms.
