Stress Urinary Incontinence is the sudden leakage of urine with slight pressure on the bladder and urethra.

Statistics show that every third woman suffers from SUI at some point in her life. Urinary incontinence intensifies with age and women with SUI suffer from OAB (Over Active Bladder) as well. OAB is a condition where the patient feels the urgent need to urinate.

Mild incontinence occurs during stressful activities such as

  • Exercise
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • laughing

In severe cases, the urine leaks even during

  • standing up
  • bending over
  • walking

The amount of urine during the leakage ranges from a few drops to a quantity that’s enough to soak your clothes. SUI is very common among women, and less common in men.

Statistics show that every third woman suffers from SUI in her life. Urinary incontinence powers with age. More often than not, women with SUI suffer from OAB (Over Active Bladder). OAB is a condition where the patient feels the urgent need to urinate. In OAB, urine leaks because of spasm and squeezing of the bladder.

How to get rid of SUI? 

Non-surgical treatment procedures include behavioral therapies such as

 

  1. Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and urinary sphincter.
  2. The Doctor may suggest to you when and how much fluid to consume.
  3. Healthy lifestyle changes like quitting smoking and losing excess weight are also recommended.

Surgical treatments for SUI involve improvement of the sphincter closure or supporting the bladder neck

Sling Procedure:

We create a sling or hammock using the patient’s own tissue, mesh (synthetic material), or animal or donor tissue to support the urethra. We also use a sling procedure on men with mild SI.

Injectable bulking agents:

Synthetic gels are injected around the upper part of the urethra to improve the closing proficiency of the sphincter.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation:

The doctor will cut and dissect the vaginal muscles to tighten the top, bottom and outer muscles of the vagina with the laser. This procedure enhances muscle tone, strength, contractile force, and control.
