Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Post-prostatectomy patients at least 6 months after either open radical retropubic prostatectomy or robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy with bothersome stress urinary incontinence will be initially screened with urodynamics, a 24 hour pad test, and a self questionnaire to assess how bothersome their incontinence is.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult men age 18-80 who have had an open or laparoscopic radical prostatectomy more than 6 months ago who have bothersome urinary incontinence.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any significant cardiac or pulmonary co-morbidities that would preclude the patient from another surgical procedure as they would be too high risk for general anesthesia.
  • They will also be excluded if based on their anatomy or urodynamics, they will most likely not benefit from a surgical incontinence procedure (e.g. poor bladder contractility, bladder neck contracture, etc).
