Would I be a good candidate for ThermiVa if I have a uterine mini sling? Is the mesh able to withstand the RF?

Yes you can safely have the ThermiVa treatment without damage to the sling. Since your recent exam is problem free it seems you are ready to schedule your first Thermiva treatment. Remember to shave the area a day or two prior to the procedure.

ThermiVa and Mesh
ThermiVa works great for patients with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. The contraindications for ThermiVa treatments are as follows: presence of an internal stimulator/cardiac device (i.e. pacemaker, defibrillator, mechanical valve), pregnancy, active STD, and/or current urinary tract infection.
works by delivering radiofrequency (thermal energy) via a small probe to both
the internal vaginal canal and the external labia. The tissue is heated to
specific temperatures, encouraging the growth of new collagen, increased blood
flow and improved nerve supply. The amount of heat generated by the ThermiVa is
not enough to cause damage to your mesh.
