Surgery for Urinary Incontinence
Obstetrics And Gynaecology
If other treatments for urinary incontinence are unsuccessful, surgery or other procedures may be recommended. Before making a decision, discuss the risks and benefits with a specialist, as well as any possible alternative treatments. If you are a woman and plan to have children, this will affect your decision, because the physical strain of pregnancy and childbirth can sometimes cause surgical treatments to fail. Therefore, you may wish to wait until you no longer want to have any more children before having surgery.
