Pelvic Floor Reconstruction | Utah

Dr Joanne S Hinson, GYN, provides her patients with a guide to understanding Pelvic Floor Reconstruction surgery (caused by pelvic organ prolapse).  Dr Hinson will discuss the various types of pelvic organ prolapse, as well as the surgical procedures that may help to improve your unique situation.  Dr Hinson invites you to discuss your treatment options with jher, including post-operative care.

When an organ becomes displaced, or slips down in the body, it is referred to as a "prolapse".  If you have been diagnosed you with a pelvic orgran prolapse it means that part of your vagina has become weakened or displaced. In the case of pelvic organ prolapse you may be a candidate for Pelvic Floor Reconstruction.

Women afftected by pelvic prolapse sometimes refer to their "dropped bladder" or "fallen uterus".  In the medical profession these conditions are referred to in more technical terms such as "cystocele", "uterine prolapse", or "rectocele".  Symptoms of pelvic prolapse can include pressure or discomfort in the vaginal or pelvic area, often made worse with physical activities such as prolonged standing, jogging or bicycling.

What is Pelvic Floor Reconstruction?

Pelvic Floor Reconstruction can be performed in a few basic ways:

  • Through vaginal incisions
  • Through traditional abdominal incisions, or
  • Through laparoscopic approach

Hospitalization and recovery times vary for each procedure type. Surgical repairs for pelvic prolapse sometimes involve the placement of "mesh", or "graft" materials, to reinforce areas of weakened tissues.

If you are considering pelvic floor reconstruction surgery, Dr Hinson will ask you questions about your medical history to ensure that your are a candidate for this type of procedure.  There are some contraindictions, warnings, potential complications, and adverse events associated with pelvic floor reconstruction.  All potential issues will be discussed with Dr Hinson prior to making a decision.

Dr Hinson's recommendation is that you consult with her and gain a complete understanding about pelvic floor reconstruction to determine whether this is the right procedure for you.
