Urology Surgery


Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) is a minimally invasive procedure to treat female patients with stress incontinence. In women, stress incontinence can cause involuntary urine release during activities that put pressure on your bladder, such as coughing or laughing. The tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure is intended to support a sagging urethra so that when you cough or move vigorously or suddenly, the urethra remains closed and no urine is accidentally released.

If you have stress incontinence, you may leak urine when you do the following:

  • Cough or sneeze
  • Laugh
  • Bend over
  • Lift something heavy
  • Exercise


To identify and learn more about it, the following examination may be done:

  • Physical exam, which may include a rectal exam and a pelvic exam in women
  • Urine sample to test for infection, traces of blood or other abnormalities
  • Brief neurological exam to identify any pelvic nerve problems
  • Urinary stress test

Bladder function tests may include:

  • Measurements of post-void residual urine
  • Measuring bladder pressures.
  • Creating images of the bladder as it functions.
  • Cystoscopy

Make an appointment right away for consultation on your urological issue.
