Laparosopic Sacrocolpopexy

Minimally invasive vaginal vault suspension

Historically, sacrocolpopexy has required a large incision with a long recovery and significant post-operative discomfort. Thankfully, technology has allowed us to offer the same procedure using small incisions which diminish the postoperative pain and shorten the recovery.

Sacrocolpopexy is a permanent solution to significant prolapse of the uterus or the vaginal vault.

Childbirth can cause damage to the support system of the pelvis, resulting in prolapse, or falling, of the uterus. Even if the uterus is removed,the vagina can fall due to gravity and other forces. The result is mild to severe discomfort in the area, a feeling of something bulging out of the vagina, back pain, or in extreme cases, inability to sit or walk comfortably.

Sacrocolpopexy is a surgical technique that involves suturing permanent non-reactive implant material to the apex of the vagina and securing it to the sacrum, or spine. The result is permanent support of the vagina. Outcomes for this procedure have been excellent.

If you think you may be a candidate for laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy, please make an appointment for a consultation.
