Many women will choose to have surgical correction of their prolapse. Every woman is different so surgical treatment may differ for each woman. There are many factors to consider when having surgery for prolapse including medical history, previous surgeries, and personal goals as well as other factors with the primary focus being on improving quality of life.
Surgery for prolapse can be approached from either the abdominal route or the vaginal route. When doing abdominal surgery for prolapse the robotic or laparoscopic route is used to improve pain and decrease risk.
