Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Procedures
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the muscles and connective tissues in the pelvis, which hold up the pelvic organs, weaken causing the uterus, bladder or rectum to slip into the vaginal canal. At other times, a prolapsed uterus occurs. This is when all of the pelvic organs including the uterus or the upper portion of the vagina can protrude down into lower portion of the vagina or even outside of the opening of the vagina.
Types of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Overview of Symptoms
If you have pain and discomfort from pelvic organ prolapse that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment and lifestyle changes, you may want to consider surgery. The choice of surgery depends upon which organs are involved, how bad your symptoms are, and what other medical conditions are present.
