Urogynecological surgeries

These operations involve the area around the pelvic floor. Pregnancy and childbirth can lead to conditions such as urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, such as uterine prolapse, which can be treated through urogynecological surgeries.

Information for patients:

Differentiation is made between:

  • Treatment of urinary incontinence and prolapse conditions
  • Revision surgeries


Urinary incontinence: Causes of bladder weakness can include a stretched pelvic floor or weak connective tissue, and the treatment aims to restore natural position and function.

In Gateway Clinics, the following treatments are offered in this context:

  • Diagnostic evaluation of female prolapse conditions
  • Conservative treatment of incontinence and prolapse conditions

 → ErYAG laser therapy
 → Physiotherapy / pelvic floor training / biofeedback
 → Pessary therapy

  • Minimally invasive surgical treatment of prolapse conditions

 → Vaginal surgical procedures
 → Laparoscopic surgical procedures

  • Minimally invasive surgical therapies for stress urinary incontinence

 → Tension-free suburethral tape
 → Paraurethral injection therapy (injection into the urethra)
 → State-of-the-art multimodal urge incontinence therapy, including BOTOX instillation into the bladder

Revision surgeries: If a surgery has already been performed to correct bladder weakness and has not achieved the desired outcome, new approaches are undertaken to restore pelvic floor function.
