Robotic Surgery for Incontinence/Sacral Colpopexy
Sacrocolpopexy is performed for those patients with a dropped or poorly suspended uterus or uterine prolapse. These patients often undergo hysterectomy. For younger women or those not desiring to undergo hysterectomy, a sacrocolpopexy may be performed to recreate the normal suspended uterus without the need for removal. This is performed with robotic assurance thus is performed in a minimally invasive technique.
Any urinary incontinence that accompanies the uterine prolapse will be addressed and corrected with a small transvaginal sling during the same operation.
