  • da Vinci® Treatment for Pelvic Prolapse

  • Television's Dr. Oz has called pelvic organ prolapse one of the "last taboo" topics in gynecology, even though nearly half of all women will experience the problem in their lifetimes.

    Here's the story: Normally, muscles and tissues firmly support the organs in a woman's lower abdomen. Genetics, childbirth, hysterectomy and other factors can cause this support to fail, in which case the uterus, vagina, bladder, small intestine and/or rectum can fall or prolapse. Over time, a woman with pelvic organ prolapse may experience incontinence, constipation, sexual dysfunction, lower abdominal discomfort and bulging at the vagina.

    If your doctor recommends sacrocolpopexy, you may be a candidate for a new surgical procedure called da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy. This procedure uses a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help your surgeon perform a minimally invasive surgery through small incisions.

    For most women, da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy offers numerous potential benefits over a traditional open approach:

    • Significantly less pain
    • Less blood loss and need for transfusions
    • Less risk of infection
    • Less scarring
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Shorter recovery time
    • Quicker return to normal activities
