Overcome Stress Incontinence with the Robotic Burch Procedure by Skilled Urogynecologists
If you suffer from stress incontinence – or urinary leakage due to stress on the urinary tract -- you know how embarrassing and disruptive that can be.
But you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure known as a robotic Urethropexy, also known as Burch procedure. The is performed by highly trained urogynecologists and uses no mesh slings or foreign objects to support the urethra.
During the procedure, a surgeon inserts small instruments and a camera into the abdomen through keyhole incisions. He or she then suspends the urethra to strong ligaments attached to the pubic bone. Some patients have to use a catheter for three to five days following the procedure.
Benefits over traditional open surgery include:
Shorter hospital stays
Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
Possibly less pain
Possibly less risk of infection
Possibly quicker return to normal activities
