Bladder slings, or “mid-urethral” slings, are used to help patients in the Woodstock, IL area with stress urinary incontinence. This condition can cause patients to experience leaking due to a weakened support of the urethra. This can be embarrassing, but with the placement of a bladder sling, patients may find relief. Patients should consult with a urogynecologist to determine if the sling procedure is best for them.
