TVT

TVT, tension free trans-vaginal tape, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for definitive treatment of female stress incontinence that combines the use of a safe material, polypropylene mesh tape, with a traditional incontinence procedure called "the sling" to support the urethra. The mesh tape loosely supports the middle of the urethra and provides support only when needed, without the tension associated with traditional sling procedure. It creates a "new" hammock for the urethra.

This simple outpatient procedure is done with local anesthesia, takes approximately 20 minutes and only requires two 1/3 inch incisions.
