What is a urethral sling and why might one need to be removed by my doctor near Crystal Lake?
Medicine has developed several treatment options over the years for incontinence. The midurethral sling is a surgical procedure that has been used to treat stress urinary incontinence since 1996. Slings have revolutionized the treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women when non-invasive treatments have failed to produce optimal results. Yet, some patients develop complications that could lead to persistent leakage, vaginal pain, painful intercourse, mesh erosion, and other mesh complications.
Dr. Gandhi performs sling revisions and mesh removals as needed for the reduction or elimination of complicated physical effects from previous sling surgery.
