Continence Procedures

Tension Free Vaginal Tape (TVT)

The Tension Free Vaginal Tape (TVT) and related procedures are for the management of stress urinary incontinence.  Originally developed in Sweden around 1995, it rapidly became a gold standard procedure for the treatment of stress incontinence. 

Long term studies show the 5-7year success rate to be equivalent to traditional procedures. Importantly, the success rates appear to be maintained over time. With its low morbidity, the TVT and TVT-O procedures have become the new primary procedure for the management of Genuine Stress Incontinence. 

I have now performed hundreds of the TVT operations and have a 90% success rate.  I advise patients that while no procedure is 100% successful, 8-9 out of 10 are cured or have an 80-90% improvement. This procedure involves minimal trauma and much lower complication rates than traditional surgery.  There is usually only a minor interruption to normal activities but the usual 'no heavy lifting' applies.  You can recommence driving a car in 3 days.
