Pelvic Organ Prolpase
Pelvic Prolapse is a hernia (weakening) of the vaginal walls which can cause vaginal pressure and sometimes bulging of the bladder, rectum, or uterus which can be felt or seen at the vaginal opening. It may cause symptoms of difficulty emptying the bladder or rectum or urinary urgency and frequency. Depending on the degree of prolapse and symptoms it causes, treatment may be desired or necessary. This can sometimes be treated non surgically with pessaries which are devices that are manually inserted and removed which support the prolapse or surgically corrected with vaginal or abdominal surgery.
There are numerous techniques to correct pelvic organ prolapse and Dr. Isom-Batz evaluates each case carefully to decide which repair would be the best option.
