AdVance® Male Sling System

How it Works

This innovative, safe, and effective outpatient procedure involves placing a small sling of synthetic mesh inside the body through small incisions. The sling then supports the urethra, restoring normal bladder control. Most patients are continent immediately following the procedure and can resume normal, non-strenuous activities shortly thereafter.


  • Outpatient surgery
  • May be performed under spinal or general anesthesia
  • Recovery is often rapid (results may vary)
  • Often no catheter necessary upon discharge
  • No device activation required
  • Immediate improvement
  • Restored dignity and quality of life

AdVance® is not for people with:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Blood coagulation disorders
  • Compromised immune systems or any other condition that would compromise healing
  • Renal insufficiency and urinary tract obstruction

Speak with your doctor to determine if AdVance® is right for you.
