Surgery for Stress Incontinence
If you are suffering from severe symptoms of stress urinary incontinence or an overactive bladder (OAB), surgery may provide a permanent solution to your condition.
But surgery isn’t for everyone.
For some women, symptoms of stress incontinence or overactive bladder don’t respond to more conservative forms of treatment. When urinary incontinence begins making disruptions in your life, surgery may be your best option.
Urinary incontinence surgery is more invasive and has a higher risk of complications other therapies, but it can also provide a longer-term solution in cases that are more serious.
The surgical options available to you are dependent on the type of urinary incontinence you’re suffering from. Most surgical options for urinary incontinence are performed to treat stress incontinence.
Before you choose surgery for urinary incontinence:
- Get a precise diagnosis. Different variations of incontinence require different approaches. Your OB-GYN may refer you to an incontinence specialist or urologist for any additional diagnostic testing that may be required.
- Consider your plans for having children. Your OB-GYN may suggest putting off surgery until you’re certain that you’re finished having children. The strain of pregnancy and delivery may negate the benefits of a surgical fix.
- Know that surgery only corrects the problem it’s intended to fix. In some cases, surgery may not cure your symptoms of urinary incontinence. For instance, if you have mixed incontinence, surgery may improve your stress incontinence but not help your overactive bladder, and you may still require medication and physical therapy post-surgery to treat overactive bladder.
