Injecting substances just outside the urethra to enable better closure See All Treatments
  • This is an operation to inject  into the wall of your urethra (water-pipe) to enable better closure of the urethra and thereby  treat stress urinary incontinence
  • It is normally done as a day-case or 24hour stay  with quick recovery time and return back to work
  • The success rate in improving or curing incontinence can be in the order of 50 to 70% which  is probably not as good  as other more invasive procedures
  • Some times repeat injections may be needed
