Dr. Sasse in contributing articles to Sixty and Me in an effort to raise awareness about the best-kept secret for resolving incontinence. In his third article for the website, he discusses the very real issue of the failed bladder sling, including next steps.

From the Article

Dr. Sasse writes about the ubiquity of the bladder sling, a procedure recommended to many women that involves the surgical placement of a strip of materials beneath the urethra to support the anatomy and stop leakage. While it’s marketed as a permanent solution, the reality is that many women experience leakage again after the sling procedure. Their next thought is often some version of, now what?

“The answer is usually a lot simpler than one might think. Although not nearly as well known, and far less taught in surgical training programs, sacral neuromodulation is a less invasive treatment that has significantly higher success rates than other treatments, including the surgical sling procedures, daily medications, or exercise therapies,” writes Dr. Sasse.

He goes on to explain more about sacral neuromodulation, and why women who have dealt with a failed bladder sling might consider skipping the revised sling proceeder.

“If only more people knew that over 90% success is achieved with the less invasive sacral neuromodulation! While it requires some effort to find the specialists with the required expertise, the benefits of a 25-minute procedure that does not require general anesthesia or daily medications are well worth it.”
