Suburethral Sling (Surgery)

Body Area: Female Specific
Body Parts: Genitals
Symptoms: Incontinence
A suburethral sling is used primarily in cases of urinary incontinence due to loose urethral supports from age or childbirth. A synthetic hammock is used to support the urethra that will become more stable as tissues develop around it while you heal after surgery. The suburethral sling then provides the extra support that the ligament was unable to.
