Pelvic prolapse is a condition that occurs when muscles and ligaments supporting your pelvic organs weaken. As a result, these organs (uterus, vagina, cervix, bladder, urethra, or rectum) slip from their normal position.
Typically, pelvic prolapse worsens over time and can only be fully corrected with surgery. The procedure is called sacrocolpopexy. It is considered the most effective way to correct pelvic prolapse and resolve symptoms.
If your doctor recommends sacrocolpopexy to treat pelvic prolapse, ask about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. State-of-the-art da Vinci Surgery allows a surgeon to perform complex procedures with just a few tiny incisions. As a result, you can get back to your life without the usual recovery that follows major surgery. The enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control of da Vinci allows doctors to perform a durable sacrocolpopexy, even for women with complex cases.
da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy offers women the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery:
- Shorter operation
- Low rate of complications
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
- Less blood loss
- Shorter duration with catheter
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date.
