Urogynecology & Pelvic Support

Uterine Prolapse
This is the dropping of the Uterus into the Vaginal canal. Quite commonly this problem can occur after childbirth and can cause pressure, pain, or bulging from the Vagina. Although surgery is typically needed to correct this problem the newer options can be performed on an outpatient basis with a quick return to most activities.

Bladder/Vaginal Prolapse
Similar to Uterine prolapse, the Bladder and the Vagina itself can drop after childbirth or injury. The symptoms are similar. New treatment options are very effective and durable.

Cystocele and Rectocele Repair
Cystocele refers to the specific bulge below the bladder that may occur after childbirth. It is often associated with Stress Urinary Incontinence but can cause other problems as well. Rectocele refers to a bulging into the Vagina from the Rectal wall. Constipation, pressure, and splinting (The need to apply pressure in the vagina to allow for Bowel movements.) are common symptoms. Kaegel exercises, Physical therapy, Pessaries, and outpatient surgeries are the common corrective measures discussed for the problems.
