Exploring your treatment options
After a thorough evaluation, our doctors will suggest the most appropriate treatment for you. This may include nonsurgical options such as physical therapy to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, bladder retraining, pessary use or lifestyle modifications. Many types of minimally invasive surgical options exist as well, including:
- Tension-free vaginal tape sling: A highly effective outpatient procedure that supports the urethra with tension-free mesh tape placed just behind the pubic bone to treat stress urinary incontinence.
- Vaginal hysterectomy with vault suspension: To treat uterine prolapse.
- Anterior colporrhaphy: To treat prolapse of the bladder into the vagina.
- Posterior colporrhaphy: To treat prolapse of the rectum into the vagina.
