Uterine and vaginal prolapse occur when the tissues connecting the pelvis and interior muscles become weak and are unable to hold their natural shape. This can occur in any pelvic floor organ, which includes the vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum. Weakening of these tissues can increase with age and after childbirth.
To correct a pelvic prolapse, physicians perform a procedure called sacrocolpopexy. In the past, this procedure was done openly for correcting this issue. With advances in technology, this can be done minimally invasive, which has many positive benefits for patients. Some of the benefits of this type of procedure may include less bleeding and pain, decreased risk of infection, smaller scars, shorter hospital stay and recovery times as well as returning to a normal schedule faster.
