In some cases, your doctor might recommend surgery to remove any blockage in the bladder or urethra that is causing overflow incontinence or to shift the position of the bladder to remove pressure on it that is causing stress incontinence.

The common surgical procedures used to treat stress incontinence are sling procedures and bladder neck suspension procedures.

Nerve stimulation is sometimes used to treat overactive bladder where in a surgical procedure a small device is implanted. This device periodically generates a mild electrical stimulation to the nerves, which results in increased tension in the bladder, sphincter, and pelvic floor muscles.

You must talk to your doctor to see if any of the above surgeries can help you manage the incontinence.
