Stress urinary incontinence (involuntary urine leakage) can be embarrassing and cause you to refrain from many activities that you used to enjoy. With new IncontiLase™ for treating mild and moderate stress and mixed urinary incontinence™ you can reduce or eliminate leakage and have a more normal lifestyle without the worry of uncontrolled urine leakage.*
As a non-invasive procedure, FDA-approved Incontilase™ tightens the connective tissues that support the bladder. Involuntary urine leakage can be a result of childbirth, aging or trauma to the area. Aging causes collagen to lose elasticity affecting the supporting tissues that surround the bladder and the valve that controls urine flow. Tightening these tissues with the heat effects of the laser helps bring back more normal support and helps keep you dry.*

IncontiLase treatments are surprisingly simple and quick. No anesthesia is required, you walk in and walk out and there are no incisions.*
The procedures are incisionless and virtually painless, with no ablation, cutting, bleeding, or sutures. A special handpiece, similar to a speculum as used during a Pap test, is inserted into the vagina. The vaginal region is then treated with subablative laser pulses.*
Two laser sessions with a one-month interval are recommended. No special pre-op preparations or post-op precautions are necessary. You can immediately return to normal everyday activities.* Dr. Mohyi has over 25 years expertise in gynecology, obstetrics and fertility, so your treatments are provided by a sensitive and highly qualiied OB/GYN specialist.
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women that causes the involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or physical exertion such as running or climbing stairs. This involuntary leakage of urine during physical activities is embarrassing and disruptive in social and sexual life.
The cause for this involuntary loss of urine is the weakening of the urethral closure mechanism, which is the result of reduced muscular tone in the pelvic floor region. The main contributing factors are vaginal child birth, obesity and aging.*
Until now SUI was treated non-invasively through muscular training, known as Kegel exercises, which are only marginally effective since they rely on daily compliance. SUI is also treated invasively with a surgical implant known as a Urethral Sling. This procedure requires hospitalization, recovery time and could potentially cause serious complications.*
