Pelvic Organ Prolapse: To Surgery or Not To Surgery?
Pelvic Organ Prolapse can be treated in several ways, depending on the exact nature and severity of your condition. You may have surgical and non-surgical options that can help you get back to feeling like yourself again.
Synthetic or biologic graft
A piece of biologic or synthetic mesh is placed over the weakened connective tissue and sutured to correct the prolapsed area
Sacrocolpopexy / sacrohysteropexy
An open, laparoscopic or robotic surgical approach is used to attach a graft between the vaginal apex and the tailbone to correct the prolapse
Native tissue repair
The patient’s own tissue is used and sutured to an existing pelvic structure in order to correct the prolapse
Vaginal pessary - a ring-like device designed to relieve symptoms when in place by holding up the vaginal walls
Pelvic floor exercises and physical therapy such as Kegel exercises, designed to increase strength and maintain elasticity in the pelvic muscles
