Laparoscopic sling surgery, also known as laparoscopic mid-urethral sling surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. Stress urinary incontinence is a condition where urine leaks from the bladder during activities that put pressure on the abdomen, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising

During the laparoscopic sling surgery, a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen and uses specialized instruments and a laparoscope to place a sling made of synthetic mesh or tissue underneath the urethra. The sling supports the urethra, preventing urine from leaking out during physical activity. The mesh or tissue in the sling acts as a scaffold for the body’s tissues to grow into and anchor the sling in place.

Laparoscopic sling surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that offers a quicker recovery time and less postoperative pain compared to traditional open surgery. However, as with any surgery, there are risks and potential complications associated with laparoscopic sling surgery. It is important to discuss all options and risks with a qualified medical professional to determine if laparoscopic sling surgery is the best option for individual cases.
