Pelvic Prolapse Surgery

Pelvic organs prolapse is when the uterus, bowel, bladder, or top of the genitals descends out of the vagina or rectum, causing a bulging sensation.


Pelvic Prolapse causes severe discomfort besides urinary incontinence, constipation, and painful intercourse. Your doctor will suggest Pelvic Prolapse Surgery when pelvic floor exercises, lifestyle changes, and medications fail to provide relief.

Who Needs Pelvic Prolapse Surgery?

This procedure is prescribed for patients suffering from the following symptoms:

  • Feeling heavy around the lower abdomen and vagina.
  • A feeling of something protruding out of the vagina or sitting on a small ball
  • Discomfort and pain during sexual intercourse
  • The sensation of a bulge or lump to touch in the vaginal region
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Frequent visits to the toilet

How Is Pelvic Prolapse Surgery Done?

Pelvic Prolapse surgery is done through laparoscopy under general anaesthesia. The procedure is known as Laparoscopic colposuspension, where the surgeon will reconstruct the pelvic floor and resuspend the vagina through keyhole incisions through small incisions on the abdomen. Through these incisions, thin, flexible tubes with a camera attached to the end (known as ports) are inserted to project images on the computer. The surgeon then inserts advanced and small surgical instruments and completes the surgery guided by the pictures.

In certain patients, laparoscopic colposuspension is done through the vaginal route for bladder suspension, hysterectomy, and rectocele repair. The surgery may take up to 3 to 5 hours, depending on the severity of the prolapse.


When faced with complex medical treatments and options, you may seek a second opinion from another doctor, surgeon, or specialist.
