There are many types of incontinence and various treatment options. Sometimes our medical providers will recommend surgery depending on the type and severity of the patient’s incontinence. Tension free vaginal obturator tape (or TVTO) can be an effective method in restoring proper bladder function in women. The tape is made of a permanent Prolene mesh and is positioned to support the middle of the urethra. This method has shown to be more effective than drug treatments and less invasive than other bladder correcting procedures that can leave one hospitalized.
