Retropubic bladder neck suspension can easily be performed laparoscopically giving the same therapeutic result as open surgery. Laparoscopy enables better visibility of the operative field, exact placement of paraurethral sutures and acceptable hemostasis. Patients who undergo laparoscopic retropubic suspension meet with less postoperative discomfort, fewer operative complications, a shorter hospital stay and less postoperative scars. The patients are allowed to drive and return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery.
