What is Prolapse Surgery?

Learn about the various types of prolapse surgery options and techniques used to address each type, aiding in understanding the condition better.

Vaginal prolapse (a condition where the uterus, rectum, bladder and or urethra can begin to move from the normal position) is an issue that many women struggle with. If you are currently suffering from vaginal prolapse, you may already be aware of the negative effects it can have on your sex life, mental state, emotional well-being, confidence, and sense of poise. Fortunately, there are surgical solutions to prolapse available to you at IBI Healthcare Institute.

Doctors may consider several types of surgery for treating prolapse.

Prolapse Surgery: What Pelvic Organs Procedures Are Available?


Surgeons use this type of surgery to treat prolapse of the front and back walls of the vagina. Additionally, doctors perform this surgical procedure through the vagina using stitches to strengthen the vaginal canal.


You accomplish this with your tissue. Essentially, stitches attach the prolapsed area to a muscle in the pelvis.


In this procedure, doctors attach mesh to the front and back of the vagina and then to the tailbone.


Doctors can use this as an alternative to a hysterectomy (a surgery that removes the uterus) to treat prolapse. Doctors attach mesh to the lower end of the uterus and then to the lower back, holding it in place.

Vaginally Placed Mesh

Doctors can use this type of surgery to treat all categories of prolapse. It is an option for women who do not have enough tissue structure to perform other types of prolapse surgery.  Because it can cause complications in some women, highly experienced surgeons in the field of vaginal reconstruction, such as those at IBI Healthcare Institute, must perform it.

Am I a Candidate for Prolapse Surgery?

If you are having severe symptoms of prolapse that are interfering with your daily life, sexual health, and general comfort you will most likely be a good candidate for prolapse surgery. Factors such as your age, whether you plan to have children in the future and your general health can affect your candidacy and ultimately, which surgery is right for you.
