Urinary Incontinence & Prolapse Surgery


 

Urinary Incontinence and Prolapse Surgery offered is inclusive of 1.) cystocele repair, urethral suspension and 2.) rectocele repair. With childbearing by vaginal delivery and estrogen deficiency of menopause women may be susceptible to loss of pelvic muscular support and muscle tone with resulting pelvic pressure, urinary incontinence and constipation problems.

These surgeries have operation related risks, possible long-term effects, and high recurrence rates so the surgery is normally recommended only when other treatment options are not available or have failed. Sometimes mesh is used to reinforce tissues that are susceptible to recurrent bulging or herniation.

 


  • Cystocele Repair and urethral suspensions procedures attempt to correct the condition that occurs when the tough fibrous wall between a woman's bladder and urethra and her vagina is torn by childbirth, allowing the bladder to drop or herniate into the vagina. This condition may cause pelvic pressure, discomfort and problems with emptying the bladder. Because the hormone estrogen helps keep the elastic tissues around the vagina strong, a cystocele may not occur until menopause, when levels of estrogen decrease. A bladder and or urethra that has dropped from its normal position may cause two kinds of problems: unwanted urine leakage and incomplete emptying of the bladder.
  • Rectocele Repair attempts to correct the condition that occurs when the tough fibrous wall between a woman's rectum and her vagina is torn by childbirth, allowing the rectum to bulge or herniate into the vagina. This condition may cause pelvic pressure, discomfort and problems with bowel movements or constipation. Because the hormone estrogen helps keep the elastic tissues around the vagina strong, a rectocele may not occur until menopause, when levels of estrogen decrease.
