Sling implant AdVance XP

What is it?

The sling implant is a surgical procedure used to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. Stress urinary incontinence occurs when there is an involuntary loss of urine during activities that increase abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, lifting weights, or exercising. The sling implant involves the insertion of a thin strip of synthetic material or the patient's own tissue underneath the urethra to support and strengthen its function.


The sling implant offers several benefits to women with stress urinary incontinence. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Symptom reduction: The sling implant can reduce or eliminate urine leakage associated with stress incontinence, allowing women to carry out daily activities without worry or embarrassment.
  • Improved quality of life: By reducing urinary incontinence, the sling implant can significantly improve women's quality of life, enabling them to participate in social, sporting, and work activities without the limitations imposed by symptoms.
  • Minimally invasive: The sling implant is considered a relatively minimally invasive surgical procedure, often performed on an outpatient basis. This means that patients can return home on the same day of the procedure, and the recovery period is generally short.


To understand if the sling implant is the most suitable treatment, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
