Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatments |MedStar Health

Surgery for stress urinary incontinence:

  • Transobturator and retropubic sling procedures

  • Laparoscopic Burch colposuspension

  • Tension-free vaginal tape procedure

  • Periurethral injection therapy, may be used when the sphincter muscle of the urethra is very weak; a substance is injected around the urethra to add bulk. This procedure can be done in our office or clinic.

Slings - Different materials are currently being used as slings to provide support for the urethra.

Colposuspension - Stitches are suspended across the neck of the bladder to lift the bladder and urethra and hold them in place.
