Pelvic prolapse occurs when one or more pelvic organs (bladder, urethra, uterus, vagina, small bowel rectum) fall from their normal locations. The condition affects many women, and often occurs following childbirth, menopause or a hysterectomy.

Symptoms of Pelvic Prolapse

  • Pressure in the vagina or pelvic area
  • Lump or bulge visible from the vaginal opening
  • Urinary, bowel or sexual dysfunction
  • Low back pain
  • Low abdominal pain
  • Discomfort with urination, defecation or sexual intercourse

The Best Treatment for Pelvic Prolapse

Sacrocolpopexy (a surgical technique for repairing pelvic organ prolapse), which uses surgical mesh to suspend the vagina and correct pelvic prolapse, can now be performed robotically. This allows for less pain and a quicker recovery.

This minimally invasive surgical option often means:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities
