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
