Pelvic floor reconstruction for pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a condition in which the pelvic organs - bladder, bowel, or uterus - protrude into the vagina. POP can cause symptoms such as a vaginal bulge, pelvic pressure or discomfort, or difficulty with bladder or bowel function. Many factors are involved in the development of POP, such as weakening of the pelvic muscles, damage to the connective tissue or nerves of the pelvis, and chronic conditions or activities that increase abdominal pressure.
Sacrocolpopexy is an abdominal operation that uses a synthetic mesh as a substitute for the patient’s tissues, and repairs the prolapse by suspending the vaginal vault to the sacrum. When performed robotically with the da Vinci Surgical System, the procedure is performed through several small incisions in the upper abdomen. This may result in decreased blood loss, infection risk, and postoperative pain.
A urogynecologist, or physician who specializes in female pelvic medicine and pelvic floor disorders, is uniquely trained to evaluate and treat all forms of pelvic floor disorders and can discuss the risks and benefits of surgery and other treatments with you.
