Urinary Incontinence Treatment/Surgery

If other treatments for urinary incontinence are unsuccessful or unsuitable, surgery or other procedures may be recommended.

Before making a decision, discuss the risks and benefits with a specialist, as well as any possible alternative treatments.

If you’re a woman and plan to have children, this will affect your decision – the physical strain of pregnancy and childbirth can sometimes cause surgical treatments to fail.

You may wish to wait until you no longer want to have any more children before having surgery.

The various surgical treatments for urinary incontinence are outlined below.

 

Surgery and procedures for stress incontinence

Colposuspension

Colposuspension involves making an incision in your lower abdomen, lifting up the neck of your bladder, and stitching it in this lifted position.

This can help prevent involuntary leaks in women with stress incontinence.

There are 2 types of colposuspension:

  • open colposuspension – where surgery is carried out through a large incision
  • laparoscopic (keyhole) colposuspension – where surgery is carried out through one or more small incisions using small surgical instruments

Both types of colposuspension offer effective long-term treatment for stress incontinence, although laparoscopic colposuspension needs to be carried out by an experienced laparoscopic surgeon.

Problems that can occur after colposuspension include difficulty emptying the bladder fully when going to the toilet, recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), and discomfort during sex.
