da Vinci Robotic Burch Procedure

Overcome stress incontinence with the robotic Burch procedure by skilled urogynecologists at Augusta University Medical Center.

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.

How it Works

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.
