Monarc Subfascial Hammock

     Stress incontinence occurs because weakened tissues around and
beneath the urethra allow it to move excessively when you cough or
sneeze. The Monarc procedure works by placing a small medical
mesh beneath the urethra to prevent it from moving excessively when
you cough or sneeze.
    Additional details of the Monarc:
  • Requires two 1/8 inch long and one inch long incision.
  • Same day discharge from the hospital.
  • Most patients require no pain medicine.
  • After the procedure, most patients have immediate continence.*
  • Avoids entering the abdominal cavity, decreasing chances of serious complications.
  • High success rate of about 95%.
  • In summary, for most patients this is a minimally invasive procedure, with minimal discomfort and minimal recovery,
  • with immediate results and high satisfaction rates.
  • Ask your physician for a brochure or more details.
*Note this does not cure a different type of incontinence called unstable bladder or all patients.
