Sling Surgery in India

Incontinence is faced by a large number of women, regardless of age. It is a medical condition in which you don’t have voluntary control over urination or defecation. It is said that a majority of women face incontinence of a certain degree, some more severe than others. Often, a majority of women afflicted with this issue refuse to seek help, due to fear of embarrassment or lack of awareness about treatments. However, there are a variety of treatments that exist, which effectively keep urinary Incontinence at bay. Mini Sling Surgery, TVT surgery, and TOT surgery work towards alleviating the symptoms of Incontinence such as involuntary leakage of urine on coughing, laughing, sneezing or during intercourse.

What is sling surgery?

Sling surgery aims at treating Incontinence, by placing strips of synthetic mesh (sling) that supports the urethra and keeps it closed when you cough or sneeze, and prevents accidental leakage. Essentially, there are three types of Sling Surgeries:

1. TVT (Tension Free Transvaginal Tape)

The surgeon places a tape-like mesh strip under the urethra and behind the pubic bone, using a needle. The tiny cuts made under the urethra and on the pubic bone are then sealed using stitches or skin glue.

2. TOT (Transobturator Tape)

Three cuts are made in the groin area, after which the mesh is placed under the urethra. This method has shown to have a great cure rate for women.

3. Mini Sling Surgery

Mini Sling treatments is the latest innovation, which is the least invasive of the three. Using the same method as TOT/ TVT, but only with a single incision, the surgeon efficiently places the sling under the urethra.

What is the sling surgery process?

Post your preliminary tests, you’ll get anesthesia to prevent pain during the procedure. Then a catheter is placed to drain your urine. During the sling surgery procedure, experts make a small incision inside your vagina. There may be a need of an additional incision in your abdomen, above your pubic bone, or on each side of your labia. Then the sling is inserted, which is a strip of tissue or synthetic material, through your incisions. The important aspect is the type of sling used, for which the expert has to decide with the patient. The inserted sling is secure around your urethra, without any stitches. The vaginal sling surgical procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and you can leave the hospital after your surgery to recover at home.
