What are the best treatments for vaginal and uterine
Prolapse can be treated using a small device (a pessary)
inserted into the vagina. For the majority of women, this is a
temporary measure as many patients feel that they would like more
permanent solution to their prolapse. Surgical options include
vaginal repairs or prolapse repair using key-hole surgery. In some
women, the use of strengthening vaginal mesh is needed to support
the prolapse. In addition, we provide the unique expertise of
suspending the uterus using key-hole surgery instead of
hysterectomy for women with prolapse of the womb.
What if I had a hysterectomy and the prolapse came back?
In many women, this condition is described as vaginal vault
prolapse, where the top of the vagina protrudes through the vaginal
opening. The best treatment for this condition includes suspension
of the top of the vagina with mesh using key-hole surgery. This is
a specialist service provided at out hospital and has the main
advantage of quicker recovery and return to normal activity along
with smaller more cosmetic scars.
What if I had a previous prolapse repair and the prolapse came
The best treatment option for this condition (recurrent
prolapse) is prolapse repair using mesh. Through our subspecialist
team, we offer the unique expertise of providing this service to
women with recurrent vaginal prolapse.
