Pelvic surgery is aimed to correct a problem in the organs or structures within the pelvic region.
- To repair damaged organs (i.e. weakened pelvic floor)
- To remove damaged organs (i.e. hysterectomy)
- To treat serious disease (i.e. cancer)
- To treat urinary incontinence
- To treat prolapse
Pelvic prolapse is becoming an increasingly common condition for which surgery is required to correct the position of the organs which have fallen out of place. Pelvic surgery can also be used for the other organs such as bladder issues (urinary incontinence) or bowel incontinence.
