Surgical Sling Procedure for Correction of Incontinence


SSWC physicians use a Monarc sling procedure as one of the surgical techniques to correct urinary incontinence in selected patients. It has a success rate of 80% @ 5 years.

It is performed through 3 small incisions and does not require any abdominal incisions.

A detailed description of this procedure is available at the underlined link.

Please let your provider know if you have a problem with urinary incontinence as they can initiate diagnostic tests if indicated and recommend treatment options.  The Monarc is one of the surgical options and can be performed as an outpatient.

As an aside. There are numerous TV ads by attorneys that characterize the mesh used in the Monarc procedure as dangerous. Our providers have had excellent results with this procedure and very few minor, easily correctable problems with the mesh.
