Urinary Incontinence

After prostate removal for the treatment of prostate cancer it is possible for men to continue to have incontinence of urine even after healing had taken place. Fortunately, there are two surgical options for the treatment of urinary incontinence after prostatectomy.

The Advance Male Sling is a mesh system that is placed through a small incision between the scrotum and the anus. This sling is typically recommended in men with mild to moderate post-prostatectomy incontinence.

The Artificial Urinary Sphincter is a surgical option for men with severe post-prostatectomy incontinence. This device includes an inflatable cuff that wraps around the male urethra and a pump placed within the scrotum. It prevents the flow of urine through the urethra and allows flow when the cuff is deflated through use of the pump.

Interstim (Sacral Neuromodulation) Percutaneous Lead Placement

For patients with loss of urinary control including frequency, urgency, urge incontinence, and urinary retention – Interstim is a potential treatment option. In the office we offer placement of a temporary lead (electrical stimulator) that is placed externally to stimulate the sacral nerve. The procedure utilizes a local anesthetic for comfort during lead placement and normally takes 20 minutes.
