Incontinence Treatments

Single Incision Sling

A single incision sling is a treatment that can be recommended by your physician to treat stress incontinence. It only requires your provider to make a 1.5 centimeter vaginal incision to insert the sling under the urethra. There are no external incisions. The limited incision can potentially decrease pain and post-procedure recovery time.

Most patients can return to work within a few days, with a restriction on lifting and intercourse for four to six weeks. As with all treatment plans, your physician should discuss with you the most appropriate treatment for your situation.
