There are several different kinds of
surgeries to correct
stress incontinence, which occurs when weakened
pelvic floor muscles allow the bladder neck and
urethra to drop. These surgeries seek to lift the
bladder, or both into the normal position. This makes sneezing,
coughing, and laughing less likely to make urine leak from the bladder.
Surgery works to cure stress incontinence better than any other treatment. If other treatments (like pelvic floor muscle exercises) haven't worked to control your incontinence, surgery may be your best option. What kind of surgery you have depends on your preference, your health, and your doctor's experience.
Surgery is done much less often for urge incontinence, and the results are not as good.
