Burch Colposuspension


Burch colposuspension is a surgical procedure used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women by providing support to the bladder neck and urethra. This procedure involves lifting and stabilizing the bladder neck and urethra with sutures attached to the pelvic ligaments, thereby reducing urine leakage during physical activities such as coughing, sneezing, or exercising. At our clinic in Indore, we offer Burch colposuspension as a highly effective treatment option for women with stress urinary incontinence.


During a Burch colposuspension procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdomen and accesses the pelvic area. Using sutures, the bladder neck and urethra are lifted and repositioned to provide better support and prevent urine leakage. The sutures are then anchored to the pelvic ligaments, securing the bladder neck and urethra in place. This helps restore normal bladder function and reduce symptoms of stress urinary incontinence.


Benefits of Burch Colposuspension:

  • Effective Treatment: Burch colposuspension is highly effective in treating stress urinary incontinence, with success rates ranging from 80% to 90%.
  • Long-lasting Results: Many women experience long-lasting relief from symptoms of stress urinary incontinence after undergoing Burch colposuspension.
  • Minimally Invasive: While Burch colposuspension is a surgical procedure, it is minimally invasive and typically performed using laparoscopic techniques, resulting in smaller incisions, less postoperative pain, and faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgery.
