Surgical Treatment for Women with SUI


Burch Colposuspension Treatment

Burch Colposuspension is a treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. The aim is to reposition the bladder neck so that it can better resist the pressure from a full bladder. Your doctor can also recommend this surgery if you suffer from mixed urinary incontinence. Because the surgery is designed to treat only SUI symptoms, it may be less effective in these cases.

When should I consider colposuspension?

Burch colposuspension is an alternative treatment to sling implantation if you have mild to moderate urinary incontinence. Because slings are the most common treatment option for SUI, colposuspension is generally only recommended if they are not the best treatment option for you.
