Why choose a Surgical Treatment?9

Choosing a surgical solution offers a possible permanent solution

Once an accurate diagnosis is made by your urologist, it may be determined that the best way to treat your incontinence is to have a sling implanted, such as the Virtue® Male Sling.

The Virtue sling is made of a soft, flexible polypropylene mesh material, and is implanted to support and elevate the bulbous urethra. By applying a gentle compression, this helps to prevent urine leakage.

Typically, Virtue is inserted during an out-patient procedure. Individual recovery time may vary, but the average time is 8 weeks. During this time, heavy lifting should be avoided. Your physician will discuss your recovery plan in greater detail.
