Laparoscopic Repair

Laparoscopic repair of uterine prolapse with or without uterine preservation

Uterine prolapse can occur when the ligaments supporting the uterus weaken, providing inadequate support. The uterus then descends into the vaginal canal. This can cause symptoms because the uterus begins to press on other organs in the area causing pressure and pain.

There are several forms of treatment for uterine prolapse. If your gynecologist recommends surgery, minimally invasive repair of this condition has many benefits. Your doctor will discuss removing your uterus if the prolapse is severe, but this will depend on many individual factors.

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic repair of pelvic organ prolapse with uterine preservation

Robotic surgery can be utilized for any procedure that laproscopy would be indicated for and indeed expands the indications for minimally invasive surgery for many cases in which an open approach might otherwise be required. This would include surgery for endometriosis, uterine leiomyomata, adnexal or ovarian cysts, re-staging of ovarian cancer, endometrial hyperplasia/cancer, and pelvic reconstructive procedures, paravaginal defect repair, sacrohysteropexy, uterosacral vaginal vault suspension.

Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery

Robotic Assisted gynecological surgery is the least invasive kind of surgery to treat uterine prolapse. With robotic assisted surgery, surgeons may repair the prolapse through small incisions with unmatched precision and control. Learn more about our Surgical Expertise.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our surgeons use a state of the art robotic assisted surgical platform to provide the following proven benefits for our patients:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions, less scarring
  • Early return to normal activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Faster return to normal activities

Choosing Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic repair of pelvic organ prolapse with or without uterine preservation

Our surgeons are committed to providing the best treatment option for every individual patient. While repair of pelvic organ prolapse with or without uterine preservation performed using the da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, this procedure may not be appropriate for every patient. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
