Uro - Gyne Surgical Procedures
Sling for Stress Urinary Incontinence
A sling, composed of a synthetic mesh, is surgically inserted through a small vaginal incision and placed under the middle of the urethra. The sling supports the urethra and helps prevent leakage of urine with coughing, sneezing, or other daily activities. This surgery is performed as an outpatient, improves quality of life, and has a short recuperation time.
Sacrospinous Suspension for Uterine or Vaginal Prolapse
This procedure is performed when there is symptomatic descent of the vagina or uterus. The suspension utilizes the the sacrospinous ligaments in the pelvis in order to elevate the apex of the vagina and therefore preserve vaginal function.
Anterior Colporrhaphy for Cystocele

Posterior Colporrhaphy for Rectocele
This procedure corrects the descent of the back of the vaginal wall and the bulging rectum. The repair can be performed with absorbable stitches or with a minimal amount of mesh in order to support the rectum and back of the vagina.
