Incontinence Surgery

TVT (Tension-Free Vaginal Tape) for urinary incontinence

This minimally invasive procedure is designed to help stop the involuntary leakage of urine. Urinary incontinence is often due to a weak urethra, pelvic floor muscles or connective tissue. This can be corrected with a TVT procedure. Your surgeon will place a thin piece of soft, flexible mesh through a tiny incision in the abdomen and vagina to support the urethra. This mesh acts like a supportive sling allowing the urethra to stay closed preventing urine leakage. As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with a TVT procedure. Schedule an appointment with your provider today to see if TVT is an option for you to treat urinary incontinence.
