Pelvic Prolapse Surgery

The treatment of significant pelvic prolapse typically requires surgery and the procedure depends on the type of prolapse.

For many women, prolapse surgery will often include a hysterectomy. The majority of prolapse surgery is performed trans-vaginally so there are no external scars, but occasionally, a lower abdominal incision is necessary for more severe cases.

For a prolapsed bladder (cystocele), a synthetic mesh is often placed to help restore support to the bladder and prevent a recurrence.
