Surgical Treatment for Men with SUI

Balloon insertion

Artificial Compression Devices (Balloon insertion)

Artificial compression devices, also known as balloons, are a common treatment for mild to moderate SUI. They compress the urethra just below the bladder neck so that it can better resist the pressure of a full bladder. The goal of the balloons is to reduce urine leakage during activities such as sneezing, coughing, running or lifting.

When should I consider a balloon insertion?

Balloons can be considered in case of mild to moderate urinary incontinence. They are also recommended when other surgical treatments are not possible, or if you do not want to undergo major surgery.
