Urogynecologic Surgery

There are many minimally invasive surgical treatment options for urogynecologic conditions such as prolapse and incontinence .

While treating prolapse and some types of incontinence may first involve medications and exercise, surgical repair may sometimes be needed. If surgery is needed, our urogynecologists have unique specialty training that allows them to perform even the most complex procedures, often using minimally invasive and robotic assisted techniques.

Some common urogynecologic surgeries include:

  • Elevate Prolapse Repair System – a minimally-invasive vaginal  procedure used to treat pelvic organ prolapse
  • Uphold Vaginal Support System – a mesh system for repairing prolapse, which only uses mesh where it’s needed and is designed to reduce the risk of erosion
  • Periurethral bulking – for treatment of stress urinary incontinence
  • Interstim Neuromodulation – a technique that electrically stimulates the nerves that influence the bladder, used to treat urge incontinence and bladder frequency and urgency
  • Robotic Sacral Colpopexy – a minimally invasive abdominal procedure using the DaVinci robot for pelvic floor reconstruction
  • Vaginal reconstruction for prolapse
