Male Sling for Stress Urinary Incontinence
What is a male sling?
The male sling is an excellent, minimally invasive surgical treatment for mild to moderate male stress incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when urine exits the body during physical activity or when you cough and sneeze. The sling acts as a hammock, after being placed in the body, and supports & repositions the bladder to help restore bladder control. The treatment is completely undetectable to others and works on its own to restore continence.
How does it work?
A small “sling” made of synthetic mesh is placed through tiny incisions under the scrotum to reposition the urethra. The mesh sling then stops leakage and restores bladder control by supporting the sphincter muscle and moving it back to its natural position. You won’t need to do anything to get the sling to properly function and the success rates are excellent. The recovery is minimal but the patient is restricted from strenuous physical exertion for several weeks. There are some risks involved, including device failure, urinary retention, pain and irritation to the site of the surgery. To discuss the procedure and the risks with a urologist in Torrance, California, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shelby Morrisroe.
