What does the surgery involve?

The operation is minimally invasive and generally takes no longer than 30 to 60 minutes. It is usually carried out under general or spinal anaesthesia. The impant is inserted through a small incision under the scrotum, and the central cushion is positioned directly under the urethra. The surgeon then uses a transobturatoric approach, which has been tried and tested during thousands of sling implantations in women, to draw the mesh arms around a bony structure under the skin, and thereby securing the system firmly in place. A port made of titanium and silicone is then implanted into the scrotum. This port is necessary for later adjustments to the system.

Some patients experience dryness directly after the operation. However, the patients that are not dry after the operation, must wait 3 to 4 weeks until the surgical area has healed for the first adjustment.
