Surgery for stress incontinence: information for you

This information is intended to help women who have stress incontinence and are considering whether to have surgical treatment for it. It tells you:

  • what stress incontinence is
  • the recommendations the guideline makes for the UK about the most effective surgical treatments for stress incontinence.

It aims to help you and your health care team to make the best decisions about your care. It is not meant to replace advice from a doctor, nurse or continence adviser about your own situation.
