How is Pelvic Organ Prolapse Treated?
There are many surgeries to correct this problem depending on your problems. If you have a uterus, this will need to be removed to repair the prolapse.
The most effective surgery for prolapse at this time is sacrocolpopexy. This surgery has the best long term results with good vaginal elevation 5-10 years after surgery and longer. No other method has been proven to be a more effective surgical treatment at this time.
Sacrocolpopexy is a surgery that uses artificial mesh called Prolene to reconstruct the vagina. This tissue is very soft but also very strong. I use this tissue along the front and back of the vagina to repair your own damaged tissues and then connect it to your backbone or sacrum. This will elevate the vagina and orient the vagina in its normal position.
