Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Specialized care for pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse is when one or more of the organs inside the pelvis (found between the waist and thighs), slip from their normal positions. Normally, muscles and tissues in the pelvic region support the pelvic organs and hold them in place.

There are several causes of pelvic organ prolapse, including:

  • Vaginal childbirth
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Trastornos del tejido conectivo
  • Advanced age
  • Obesidad

Types of pelvic organ prolapse our specialists treat:

  • Incontinence​
  • Uterine prolapse​
  • Cystocele​
  • Rectocele
  • Enterocele​
  • Vaginal vault prolapse
  • Bladder prolapse

Advanced treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse

Prolapse can often be treated with non-surgical options. For others, surgery is the best option. In most cases, laparoscopic or robotic surgery options, which are less invasive and provide faster recovery, are available. Another option is abdominal repair, which can often be done in a minimally invasive fashion using robotic or laparoscopic techniques.

Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type of pelvic organ prolapse and personal preferences.

  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Robot-assisted surgery
  • Pelvic floor therapy
  • Pessary (a supportive vaginal insert)
  • Strengthen pelvic floor muscles to combat pain and incontinence

    Pelvic floor muscle weakness and tension contribute to pelvic pain and incontinence. Postural and joint alignment problems can prevent your muscles from working optimally for you.
