Overview

Vaginal prolapse is characterized by a portion of the vaginal canal protruding from the opening of the vagina. The condition usually occurs when the pelvic floor collapses as a result of childbirth and is inherent among tall Caucasian women.

Types of vaginal prolapse

Treatment

Vaginal prolapses must be treated according to the severity of symptoms.

Non-Surgical Therapy

  • With conservative measures (changes in diet and fitness, Kegel exercises, etc.)
  • With a pessary, to provide support to the weakened vaginal walls

Surgical Therapy

A new minimally invasive surgical procedure is effective in restoring a woman's anatomy to the condition it was before childbirth with a recovery time of only 2 weeks. It is performed vaginally using a laparoscope and surgical mesh to repair the cystocele and rectocele and a laser to tighten the vaginal canal creating a natural support for the uterus.
