Sacrocolpopexy (Pelvic Prolapse)

Pelvic prolapse is a condition that occurs when muscles and ligaments supporting your pelvic organs weaken. As a result, these organs (uterus, vagina, cervix, bladder, urethra, or rectum) slip from their normal position. If your doctor recommends sacrocolpopexy to treat pelvic prolapse, ask about minimally invasive da Vinci® surgery. State-of-the-art da Vinci® surgery requires just a few tiny incisions. The enhanced vision, precision dexterity and control of da Vinci® allow your doctor to perform a durable sacrocolpopexy even for women with complex cases. Da Vinci® sacrocolpopexy offers women many potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Less blood loss
  • Minimal need for blood transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stay

Potential benefits compared to laparoscopy include:

  • Minimal pain
  • Low rate of complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Small incision for minimal scarring

While sacrocolpopexy performed using the da Vinci® Surgical System is considered safe and effective, these procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
