Urinary incontinence is defined as loss of bladder control resulting in involuntary leakage of urine. Urinary incontinence varies from a slight loss of urine caused by sneezing, to a complete inability to control urination.
Urinary Incontinence is a disorder affecting many women, which causes serious discomfort and the disruption of daily life. As such, it has long been a goal of the medical community to find a treatment for this disorder which could work without compromise, with a high success rate and maximized comfort for the patient.
Unfortunately, in the pursuit of this goal, many modern treatments have been developed for Stress Incontinence which introduce foreign materials into the body. Artificial agents such as meshes, slings, and tapes, which are used to hold the bladder and urethra in secure position so as to prevent incontinence, have proven to cause irritation, rejection, and other severe health hazards to patients.
We never utilize any such artificial materials in treating Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Using your body’s own natural tissue, our physicians perform a technique known as Kelly Urethral Plication, which, through careful refinement and perfection by Dr. Shifrin over the period of many years, has led to a success rate of over 99% amongst our patients.
This technique avoids complications caused by meshes, slings, and tapes, is extremely reliable and comfortable for the patient, and, most importantly of all, achieves the goal of eliminating Stress Urinary Incontinence in virtually all patients, without resorting to dangerous, unhealthy artificial methods.
At Surgery of Tomorrow, we understand that Stress Urinary Incontinence makes everyday tasks a source of discomfort, and our physicians are here to ensure that you are ready to go out and enjoy your life!
If the patient so desires, this treatment can be combined with a Complete Vaginal Reconstruction in the event that the patient has experienced vaginal prolapse, or vaginal relaxation. This procedure can also be combined with a Vaginal Hysterectomy for the treatment of uterine prolapse.
Our surgical staff is ready to discuss your treatment plan with you individually, in the pursuit of the best possible physiological and cosmetic outcomes for each of our patients.
