Vatche, Minassian, MD, MPH, Chief of Urogynecology, and Sarah Cohen, MD, MPH, Director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, perform a laparoscopic burch colposuspension, a procedure used to correct stress urinary incontinence.

Stress urinary incontinence is one of the most common types of incontinence and is characterized by urinary leakage during physical activities including coughing, sneezing, exercising, lifting, and laughing. As the condition progresses, it can become severe enough to happen with simple acts such as bending and walking. This condition is due to an anatomic weakness of the bladder neck which typically maintains the seal of urine during activity. Stress incontinence can result from a variety of conditions including vaginal childbirth, aging, menopause and obesity. As this is an anatomic condition, primary treatment may involve pelvic floor exercises and/or minimally invasive surgery.
