Conditions We Treat: Pelvic Prolapse
When your pelvic floor muscles weaken and stretch, pelvic prolapse can occur. Without proper treatment, your pelvic organs slip out of place and bulge into the vagina.
Pelvic Prolapse: What You Need to Know
- Age, obesity and childbirth (especially vaginal delivery) increase a woman’s risk of pelvic prolapse.
- Common symptoms of pelvic prolapse include urinary leakage, constipation and difficulty with intercourse.
- Pelvic prolapse may involve multiple organs. The uterus, vagina, bladder and/or rectum can descend, creating a bulging sensation in the vagina.
- If conservative treatment options have failed, laparoscopic colposuspension, a minimally invasive surgical technique, can be used to restore the pelvic floor.
Our experts have pioneered robotic and minimally invasive surgical techniques to provide women with better results and less downtime following treatment for pelvic prolapse.
