Urinary stress incontinence or the involuntary loss of urine with laughing sneezing coughing and jumping affects nearly 25,000,000 women every year in the United States. This problem affects women from all age groups and can be the result of childbirth or simply genetic predisposition to this condition. Incontinence causes embarrassment for the woman as well as a reduction in the quality of life.
Traditionally in the past and even currently urinary sling surgery has proved to be the most effective treatment for this problem Dr. Berenholz has inserted well over 1000 mid urethral sling’s for the treatment of incontinence. Almost all of them have been done in a matter of minutes transvaginally. While these procedures have succeeded there has never been a non-invasive approach to stress incontinence. Nothing until now.
