We offer traditional surgery for gynecological conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, more commonly known as a dropped bladder. This fairly common condition affects nearly half of all women over the age of 50. The female pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and small/large bowels may drop resulting in them protruding from the vagina and/or uterus. There are a number of contributing factors including childbirth, obesity, and age. Based upon the severity of your condition, your Women’s Health Center physician may present you with a variety of treatment options, one of which may be gynecological surgery.
When considering gynecological surgery it is important to inquire about the number of surgeries performed by the surgical doctor. Some physicians conduct this type of procedure quite frequently and have therefore had the opportunity to gain experience and build his/her skills, while other physicians have performed significantly fewer of these types of procedures. While “number of surgeries” is not a guarantee for better outcomes, it is one factor of many to consider when selecting your surgical provider.
The physicians at the Women’s Health Center specialize in a variety of surgical procedures having perfected their techniques in these commonly used approaches while staying at the forefront of new cutting edge technologies and treatments. In our commitment to provide a breadth of service options to best meet patient needs, we also offer minimally invasive, bloodless surgery for conditions such as fibroids and painful or heavy periods.
