These surgeries are performed vaginally. First the doctor will determine what caused the prolapse, and then that area will be treated. Sometimes a solution is a plastic surgery of the anterior vaginal wall, posterior vaginal wall, or both. In some cases a surgeon will perform a fixation of the vagina with certain ligaments in the small pelvis.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove the uterus which is also done vaginally. Operations last 30-90 minutes, depending on the scope of the intervention. They can be performed under local or general anesthesia and the patient is discharged from the hospital usually the day after the intervention.
Surgical treatment of involuntary flow of urine
The operation is performed vaginally, by inserting a synthetic strip/mesh material through a small cut in the vagina below the bladder, i.e. the urinary tube (urethra) and then the strip is passed through small openings through the skin in the pelvis.
The operation lasts 15-30 minutes and can be performed under local or general anesthesia, in consultation with the patient.
