There is a newer procedure called Renessa which you might want to investigate. It is done in the office and also treats urethral hypermobility.

In brief: Treats incontinence
A sling is a device that is placed below the urethra - tube that drains the bladder - to prevent leakage of urine.
Slings can be mesh, biologic materials like pig skin or can be made from your own tissue. Slings are used to treat stress incontinence or leaking that is associated with activities like coughing, sneezing or jumping.
