Urgency Incontinence Surgery
Surgery for urgency incontinence may include:
- Augmentation cystoplasty:
- A segment of intestine is removed from the bowel and the bowel is repaired. One end of the segment is closed, while the other end is attached to an incision in the wall of the bladder.
- This increases the size of the bladder and provides more room to store urine.
- Augmentation cystoplasty is the most common surgical procedure performed for urgency incontinence.
