da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy

Robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy

Surgery That Gets You Back on Your Feet Faster

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a fairly common condition, affecting around 30% of women over 50. Prolapse occurs when organs in the pelvis gradually descend down lower into the abdomen, sometimes exiting the body altogether, often causing serious issues such as incontinence and bleeding. This condition has been known to follow child delivery, weight gain, hysterectomies, and other strains on the pelvic organs.

If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms of POP, know that you are not alone.

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Vaginal infection
  • Vaginal bulge
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Back pain
  • Feeling that something is falling out of your vagina

If you’ve suffered prolapse of your uterus or other pelvic organs, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy using the da Vinci® Surgical System. Sacrocolpopexy is a reconstructive surgery where a medical-grade mesh is used to reconnect pelvic organ tissue to provide support for the uterus. Sacrocolpopexies can now be performed robotically with minimally-invasive tools for a less invasive surgery. Other potential benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal daily activities

*While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® Surgical System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Robotic-assisted surgery may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
