    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    This is my first post to the group. What specialist do you recommend I see regarding surgical procedure for stress incontinence? I spoke briefly with a urologist who suggested TVT procedure. Your thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hello jgoryl and welcome! I'm the new moderator here and I saw your post didn't have any answers yet, so I thought I could offer you a bit of help.

    Whether you see a gynecologist, urologist, or gynourologist (a urologist who specializes in women's issues), or someone else, will be up to you to decide. Here's some information on the Tension-free Vaginal Tape (TVT) procedure that may help, including a .PDF you can print out.

    Let us know what you decide,

    Byroney
