Urethral Sling

Urinary incontinence, or the loss of bladder control, can be an embarrassing condition.

This is a surgical procedure used to treat urinary stress incontinence. Non-surgical treatments are also available to treat this type of urinary incontinence, including Kegel exercises, bulking agents, and pessary device. Urodynamic testing, which involves filling the bladder through a catheter and checking the function of the urethra and bladder, is sometimes performed.
