Pelvic organ prolapse refers to descending or dropping pelvic organs such as bladder, small bowel, rectum, vagina, and uterus. The dropping can be caused by obesity, childbirth, pelvic cancer, labor, pregnancy, constipation, and surgical removal of the uterus—this causes one to experience painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, vaginal spotting, and low back pain. Dr. Darin Swainston uses robotic-assisted invasive surgery to treat Las Vegas pelvic prolapse, therefore enabling you to enjoy your daily living activities without excruciating pain and fear of embarrassment.
Types of Robotic-assisted Surgeries
The surgery aims to repair your prolapse and rebuild your pelvic floor, to provide you with good health and pleasure of enjoying your daily activities such as spending time with your loved one and not missing work due to debilitating pain and fear of urge to urinate or not being able to hold your bladder for a long period while in public places.
The following are four types of minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgeries to help you overcome and get rid of pelvic prolapse once and for all.
Pelvic prolapse repair provides a safe and durable method for reconstructing the pelvic floor and its content without the need for large abdominal incisions.
It is performed using a laparoscopy inserted through four keyhole incisions across the mid-abdomen to resuspend the vagina and the associated organs with sutures and fascial grafts.
Vagina Vault Suspension
Imagine your vagina dropping. Will you be able to enjoy romantic bedtime with your partner? Worry less because vagina vault suspension, which is surgery to fix vaginal wall prolapse, provides the perfect solution and gets you back into action within no time.
Vaginal vault prolapse is caused by:
- Advanced age.
- More vaginal deliveries.
- Chronic constipation.
- Heavy lifting.
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
- And after a hysterectomy.
Vaginal vault suspension is done by reattaching the prolapsed vaginal vault higher ligaments attached to the uterus with permanent stitches and synthetic mesh to correct the following issues:
- Feeling of heaviness in the vagina.
- Painful intercourse.
- Bowel and bladder control problems.
- Low back pain.
Uterosacral Ligament Suspension
This procedure is used to correct vagina vault prolapse and other prolapse conditions. The procedure restores the support of the top of the vagina after hysterectomy, whereby the top of the vagina is stitched on the uterosacral ligaments.
It restores your normal functioning, therefore, preventing public embarrassment of the symptoms that may accompany it.
It is used to correct prolapse associated with the top of the vagina in women with advanced uterine prolapse and those who have had a hysterectomy.
Small incisions are made in your lower abdomen. Then your doctor uses tissue grafts or synthetic mesh to sew prolapsed pelvic organs, helping the pelvic organs be held in place with the effect of dropping anytime shortly.
Benefits of Sacrocolpopexy
It has lower complications, fewer hospital stays, faster recovery, and help to alleviate the following symptoms:
- Bulging and vaginal pressure.
- Urine incontinence.
- Constipation and painful intercourse.
