VIDEO: Robot-assisted operation for vaginal prolapse

It’s more common than you may think.

Vaginal prolapse (also called pelvic organ prolapse, or vaginal organ prolapse) is what happens when organs inside the pelvis fall, bulge or protrude into the vaginal wall. This condition is due to weakened muscles or ligaments that can occur from a number of causes, including childbirth, previous surgeries, and obesity. If you have signs and symptoms of vaginal prolapse, learning more about this condition (and discovering you have options!) can lead to a better way of life.

The 4:39 long video shows how the surgical procedure goes. Watch it.
