Many women suffer from female organ prolapse, a condition that can cause urine leaks, as well as pain, irritation or bleeding in the vaginal area. It typically develops gradually in women who have had children, and women whose relatives had female organ prolapse.
If you suspect you have female organ prolapse, know that treatment is available. Doctors at PAMF address mild cases using medications and physical therapy. Severe female organ prolapse may require minimally invasive surgery. After treatment, you can resume your active life without fear of embarrassment or pain.
PAMF physicians perform surgical procedures to treatment female organ prolapse at these locations:
El Camino Hospital, Mountain View
Albert Pisani, M.D., uses laparoscopic colpopexy to repair pelvic prolapse. During this minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Pisani inserts a synthetic graft to support the sagging pelvic organs. He may also perform at the same time other procedures to help with urinary incontinence and looseness in the tone of a patient’s vaginal tissue. Patients stay one or two days in the hospital for this procedure, which is done under general anesthesia.
Dr. Pisani is board certified in gynecologic oncology. He is a member of the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists and a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American College of Surgeons.
