Pelvic organ prolapse, or drooping, occurs when muscle weakness or damage decreases the effectiveness of the normal supportive structures of the pelvic floor. Pelvic organs include the vagina, cervix, uterus, bladder, urethra, bowel, and rectum. They’re held in place by muscles and layers of connective tissue. The possibility of developing pelvic organ prolapse increases after childbearing and as women age.
Symptoms may vary in intensity and type according to how severe the prolapse is. You may experience:
Dr. Antonini often recommends robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci system. He’s performed more than 500 surgical procedures with this device and finds it highly effective in treating pelvic organ prolapse. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that requires a few small incisions to insert the surgical instruments he uses to complete the procedure. It’s akin to laparoscopic surgery but takes that to the next level with its highly advanced technology. There are fewer risks of complications, less bleeding, only minimal scarring from the small incisions, and much less pain and discomfort afterward.
