How the Sling Helps Treat Incontinence

Incontinence is a common problem for women. Heavy lifting and childbirth can damage the pelvic muscles and reduce the ability to control urine flow. If your urologist says your incontinence is caused by pelvic floor muscle weakness, the sling could be a solution. Watch this video to learn more.

The sling is placed under the bladder to restore lost tightness and close the area between the urethra and the neck of the bladder. This closure reduces urinary leakage. Vaginal sling surgeries are quick procedures for many patients, who often leave the surgical center the same day of the procedure.

Sling surgery is just one option provided by Urology Associates, P.C, for incontinence issues. Make an appointment with a urologist today by calling (888) 329-7700 to learn about incontinence treatment or other concerns, such as UTI treatment.
