Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a condition wherein the bladder, uterus, or rectum drop down and protrude out of the vaginal canal. This can happen due to pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, pelvic organ cancers, and other factors that weaken the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor surgery refers to procedures that repair the pelvic floor and restore the organs to their original place.
Pelvic floor surgery can be performed using various techniques, including anterior vaginal repair, posterior vaginal repair, and vaginal hysterectomy. Anterior vaginal repair corrects the front wall of the vagina, posterior vaginal repair corrects the back wall, and hysterectomy removes the prolapsing uterus. Dr. Bonni prefers performing these procedures using a minimally invasive laparoscope, ensuring an optimal and speedy recovery.
