SURGERY FOR PELVIC FLOOR PROLAPSE
Surgery for pelvic support problems attempts to restore the normal anatomic position of the prolapsed areas and to improve symptoms, which may be caused by the prolapse. The choice of surgical procedure is individualized. Factors that may influence this choice include examination findings, previous surgery, age, other medical illnesses and patient/physician preference. The surgery typically includes repair of tears in the muscle or suspension of the prolapsed tissues to stronger structures in the pelvis. In some cases, a piece of tissue may be taken from another area to help strengthen the area. The surgery may be performed through a vaginal or abdominal incision or a combination of both. One of the goals of surgery for pelvic organ prolapse is to repair all of the defects that are present in order to prevent the need for surgery in the future. Therefore, many women will require a combination of these procedures.
Vaginal Procedures are done through an incision in the vagina. Some of the common vaginal procedures are described below.
