There are a variety of surgical procedures for stress incontinence.
The most effective involve placing a thin mesh across the mid-urethra. This is most often done through a small vaginal incision. The brand name (eg.Tvt) used is not nearly as important as the experience of the urologist or urogynecologist performing the surgery. In the right hands it is very safe.
