Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse can be both painful and embarrassing. Prolapse occurs when the normal support of the vagina is lost, resulting in “sagging” or dropping of the bladder, urethra, uterus or rectum. Many women notice a bulge and some may feel looseness or a lack of sensation in the vagina during intimacy.

The Center for Pelvic Health and Urogynecology treats conditions associated with pelvic organ prolapse with expertise and compassion. Our doctors have advanced training that allows them to offer patients non-surgical and surgical options.

Team Approach to Treatment

When you come to the Center for Pelvic Health and Urogynecology, you will have access to a team of medical experts. Our board-certified physicians partner with specially-trained physician assistants and nurses to provide you with the highest caliber of care.

Diagnosing Conditions

At the Center for Pelvic Health and Urogynecology, we recognize that while many female pelvic conditions are related, each needs to be individually addressed in order to achieve overall treatment success.

Our surgeons use state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and recommend conservative, non-surgical or minimally invasive surgical options whenever possible.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Uterine prolapse
  • Cystocele
  • Rectocele
  • Enterocele

Customized Treatment Options

The Center for Pelvic Health and Urogynecology offers non-surgical options for pelvic organ prolapse, including pelvic muscle therapy and pessary therapy.

When our physicians determine surgery is best, we offer many minimally invasive approaches to minimize discomfort and shorten recovery time. We offer laparoscopic sacral colpopexy, considered the “gold standard” for laparoscopic treatment of vaginal prolapse.
