Surgical correction of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) may be required if the condition causes symptoms such as urinary retention or pelvic pressure that are severe enough to cause significant discomfort. In most cases, the slipped organs are pulled back into place and provided with support such as a vaginal mesh to keep them there. In the case of uterine prolapse, a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) is the usual avenue of corrective surgery assuming the patient does not want to have more children. Our specialists can apply minimally invasive and robotic-assisted techniques to pelvic organ correction surgery that result in a shorter recovery time and fewer post-operative complications than traditional “open” surgeries. The various types of pelvic organ prolapse surgery include cystocele and urethrocele repair (for a prolapsed bladder or urethra), hysterectomy (for a prolapsed uterus), rectocele and enterocele repair (for the rectum and small bowel), vaginal vault suspension and vaginal obliteration.
