What is Laser Surgery For Urinary Incontinence?

Laser surgery is the most effective and non-invasive procedure for treating stress incontinence. This is one form of urinary incontinence that occurs due to loss of control over the urethral muscles. The condition is common in women who have undergone vaginal childbirth or those in their old age. The tissues supporting the urethra become weak and cannot control the flow of urine when the body is physically stressed. In laser surgery, the laser beams are directed towards the vagina, producing new collagen - a protein vital for the strengthening of pelvic tissues.

  2. It is non-invasive and hence doesn’t have the risks of other surgical procedures.

What May Happen if Laser Surgery For Urinary Incontinence is Not Treated in Time?

  1. An underlying issue will go unnoticed and can quickly escalate into a serious condition.
  2. The fear of accidental leakage in public can lead to severe mental stress. It can also isolate the person from friends.
  3. It can greatly affect a person’s social life and prevent her from participating in any physical activity. Working women can become less productive due to constant fear of leakage.
  4. There is a greater risk of urinary infection as the urine never gets completely discharged from the body. 
  5. Older patients can see a decline in their physical and mental health if UI is left untreated. This can lead to early death.

How is Laser Surgery for Urinary Incontinence Performed?

  1. There are two types of laser treatments for SUI - The micro ablative fractional CO2 laser and the non-ablative Er:YAG laser treatments. The procedure used by the medical practitioner is the same.
  2. Doctors check the patient for vaginal health. Medical practitioners also explore the occurrence of any infection.
  3. A sterilised laser applicator is inserted inside the vagina and moved outward in a circular motion to cover the whole area. Patients may feel a mildly uncomfortable heat sensation.
  4. The total time of treatment is between 20-30 minutes. Patients can leave immediately after the procedure.
  5. In most cases, patients get complete relief with three sittings having 4-6 week intervals.
  6. The selection of the procedure depends on the specialist or hospital.
