Pelvic organ prolapse is a common problem for women.
Often following vaginal childbirth, prolapse decribes a stretching or bulging of pelvic tissue down into the vagina. It causes an unpleasant dragging sensation with associated bladder or bowel problems. A bulge may appear at the vaginal opening.
My approach to prolapse utilizes surgery, lifestyle change and physiotherapy.
A prolapse consultation generally involves a discussion of your individual symptoms. An examination is required. Treatment options are then explained in detail. Our aim is to correct the prolapse and address risk factors to reduce the chance of the problem recurring.
Prolapse can be an embarrasing problem but treatments are highly effective and can greatly improve quality of life.
