Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when an organ drops from its normal position and begins bulging (prolapsed) or protruding (herniated) into other areas of the pelvis. It is caused by damaged or weakened muscles and ligaments that are no longer able to support the pelvic organs.
To treat pelvic organ prolapse, we offer nonsurgical treatments, such as pelvic floor therapy, and minimally invasive procedures, including reconstructive gynecologic surgeries.
Types of pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is categorized by which organ is affected:
- Cystocele — the bladder protrudes into the vagina
- Enterocele — the small bowel protrudes into the vagina
- Rectocele — the rectum protrudes into the vagina
- Uterine prolapse — the uterus protrudes into the vagina
- Vaginal vault prolapse — the upper section of the vagina drops into the vaginal canal
Symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse symptoms can vary but may include:
- Difficult or painful intercourse
- Difficulty urinating or having bowel movements
- Fecal incontinence
- Protruding bulge or lump
- Stretching or pulling sensation in the groin
- Vaginal pain, pressure or bleeding
Urinary incontinence causes involuntary leakage of urine and/or increased frequency of urination. It occurs when the tissues and muscles supporting the bladder have weakened. It may be caused by pregnancy and childbirth, obesity or other conditions.
Our specialists will work with you to determine a treatment to stop or ease the symptoms of urinary incontinence. Treatment may involve physical therapy or surgery.

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery

Additionally, we use an advanced type of minimally invasive surgery—robot-assisted surgery—whenever possible. Using robotic technology, our surgeons can access complex structures in hard-to-reach areas, such as those in the pelvic region, with extreme precision.
We offer the following gynecologic procedures:
- Burch urethropexy
- Endometriosis treatment
- Excessive menstrual bleeding treatment
