Prolapsed uterine repair surgery is minimally invasive surgery to treat uterine prolapse.
What is prolapsed uterine surgery?
Prolapsed uterine repair surgery is carried out by a gynaecologist. It is laparoscopic surgery, which involves small incisions and the use of a tiny camera and small instruments to view and perform the surgery.
What does prolapsed uterine surgery treat?
Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus slips down into the vagina as a result of weakened pelvic floor muscles. It can happen to women of any age, but postmenopausal women who have had one or more children through a vaginal delivery may be more at risk of uterine prolapse.
