Urinary Incontinence Surgery
Stress urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
The most common procedure to correct the issue is a sling to support the urethra or bladder neck. Colposuspension, which restores the bladder to its normal position, is another option.
This procedure inserts a laparoscope in the lower abdomen through a small incision in the belly button. Your uterus is then removed in small pieces through the incisions in your abdomen or through your vagina.
Endometrial ablation is a procedure that surgically destroys the lining of your uterus (endometrium) to reduce menstrual flow.
Reasons for the procedure include:
bleeding lasting longer than 8 days
anemia from excessive blood loss
Tubal ligation is female sterilization, also called tube tying. The procedure is a permanent procedure done to close a woman's fallopian tubes to prevent future pregnancies.
Because the tubes are usually burned off or cut, the procedure cannot be undone. If, in the future, you decide you want more children, you will need to consider IVF.
