Patients who suffer from urinary incontinence often benefit from, behavioral therapy, physical therapy and Kegel exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and increase control. Vaginal estrogen is another urinary incontinence treatment that has been found to help increase control. Depending on the type of incontinence, medications may be prescribed to decrease bladder spasms.
Urinary Incontinence Surgery
Surgical intervention methods, such as a mid urethra sling, are also available. In the case of a surgically applied sling, mesh is often used with a high success rate. Performed vaginally, the urinary incontinence surgery procedure takes six weeks to fully heal into place.
