Urethral Bulking is an operation to treat stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine when you exercise, sneeze or strain). Urethral Bulking involves injecting a bulking agent into the wall of your urethra (waterpipe) using a small telescope to treat symptoms of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The bulking agent helps the urethra to make a watertight seal and to hold urine inside your bladder.
