What is a transvaginal mesh procedure?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Transvaginal mesh is an out-patient procedure that only takes 15 minutes to complete. A sling is created around the neck of your bladder and urethra, which is the transport tube that carries urine to the bladder. This hammock alleviates tension on the urethra and prevents leakage. Sling procedures are usually covered by insurance. Talk to your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
