Laparoscopic Vault Suspension

When the tissue and ligaments that hold pelvic organs in place begin to fail, the resulting pelvic prolapse can sometimes be corrected by using a laparoscopic surgery.

Using the laparoscope and two other 1/2 inch incisions in the lower abdomen, permanent stitches are used to reattach the prolapsing vagina to the uterosacral ligaments.

This procedure is frequently used in combination with other procedures such a Laparoscopic Paravaginal Vault Suspension or posterior repair.

General anesthesia is required, and most patients return home the next day after surgery.

Benefits:

  • Less invasive
  • Less painful
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Return to work in 4 to 6 weeks
  • Small incisions
