Urogynecologic Surgery

There are many surgical treatment options for urogynecologic conditions such as prolapse and incontinence .

While treating prolapse and some types of incontinence may first involve medications and exercise, surgical repair may sometimes be needed. If surgery is needed, our urogynecologists have unique specialty training that allows them to perform even the most complex procedures. Depending on the severity of your condition, your lifestyle and your overall health, one of our Women’s Health urogynecologists will develop an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Some common urogynecologic surgeries include:

  • Elevate Prolapse Repair System – a minimally-invasive procedure used to treat pelvic organ prolapse
  • Uphold Vaginal Support System – a mesh system for repairing prolapse, which only uses mesh where it’s needed and is designed to reduce the risk of erosion
  • Urethral bulking using collagen – for treatment of stress urinary incontinence
  • Myectomy – removal of bladder muscle for treatment of urge incontinence
  • Interstim neurologic modifications – a technique that electrically stimulates the nerves that influence the bladder, used to treat urge incontinence and bladder frequency and urgency
