Introduction
When Surgery is Recommended

If non-surgical options have not solved your stress urinary incontinence, Dr. Ashford or Dr. Myer may suggest a more permanent surgical solution. One option they may recommend is a sling procedure.

What is a sling?

A sling corrects bladder leakage, or stress incontinence, by providing support to the bladder neck and urethra. After a sling procedure, most women can regain better control of their bladder. The operation is a minimally invasive outpatient surgery.

There are different types of sling procedures. Because of its minimally invasive insertion procedure and faster recovery, our urogynecologists will often recommend Altis®.

What makes the Altis sling different?

Altis offers a unique placement system that's accomplished with just one small incision. This means a good chance at a faster recovery with less pain. Here's how it works:



What our patients say about Dr. Ashford and Dr. Myer ...

Doctor Ashford and his staff gave me my life back and I would recommend them to anyone dealing with OBGYN needs. He worked with me for many months and really listened to and understood me, he also personally preformed surgery on me in April and found the right medication for my endometriosis. A million thank you's to EVERYONE at the clinic, from the people answering the phones, all the way to the nurses and Doctors Ashford, may God bless you all.
