Transvaginal prolapse repair
Transvaginal prolapse repair is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse. This minimally invasive surgery can restore the structure and function of the pelvic floor, improving symptoms of prolapse in the bladder, rectum or vagina.
These procedures can be performed using the patient’s own tissue or with synthetic and/or biologic graft material to support the pelvic floor organs and restore normal structure. Using a minimally invasive approach, urogynecologic surgeons are able to make smaller incisions, which reduces tissue trauma and helps patients heal faster. Incisions are made only in the vagina, eliminating the need for any external incisions or scarring. Patients typically spend just one night in the hospital, have significantly less postoperative pain and return to regular activity much faster.
