Treatment of Urinary Incontinence in Texas
If you’re experiencing symptoms of stress urinary incontinence or an overactive bladder, surgery might be the permanent solution to your condition. But according to our OB-GYN, Dr. Rania Ibrahim, surgery isn’t always the right solution for every patient.
For some patients, symptoms of urinary incontinence don’t always respond to more traditional methods of treatment. However, when the symptoms noticeably disrupt a patient’s life, surgery may be the most viable option.
While urinary incontinence surgery is invasive and comes with a higher risk of complications than other procedures, it can provide a longer-term solution in more severe cases of the disease.
The surgical options performed by your OB-GYN Montgomery County depend on the type of urinary incontinence the patient is suffering from. Most of the procedures used for the treatment of urinary incontinence surgery target stress incontinence. However, other low-risk surgical alternatives are accessible for other bladder problems, such as urge incontinence or urgency-frequency syndrome.
Before you opt for surgery to treat your urinary incontinence:
- Get an accurate diagnosis;
- Consider your plans for having children;
- Comprehend that surgery only corrects the problem it’s designed to treat;
- Understand the risks by discussing them with your OB-GYN.
Most surgical procedures used to treat stress incontinence are in two main categories: vaginal sling procedures and bladder neck suspension procedures.
The vaginal sling procedure creates a hammock of support and helps prevent the urethra from opening when you cough, sneeze, or laugh. The process involves placing a piece of material artificial mesh beneath the urethra. The procedure can be performed just above the vagina on the lower abdomen or into the groin creases.
The bladder suspension surgical techniques used to place the bladder back to its normal position include open, laparoscopic suspension and bladder neck procedures.
Finding an effective remedy for urinary incontinence may take time and involve numerous steps. If a particular treatment approach isn’t working for you, ask your OB-GYN if there’s another solution to your problem.
