Pelvic organ prolapse is a disorder in which organs in the pelvic region shift out of their normal position, or prolapse. Although a number of non-surgical treatment options are available for pelvic organ prolapse, surgery is sometimes recommended when symptoms are severe and non-surgical treatment options have not been successful. Some types of reconstructive surgery are done through an incision in the vagina or abdomen. Others are done with laparoscopy or robotically.
Shoemaker Ob-Gyn performs biologic graft and synthetic mesh repairs, anterior and posterior colporrhaphy, laparoscopic colposuspension, and minimally invasive hysterectomies. The specific procedure recommended is based on a number of factors, including age, childbearing plans, and other health conditions.
