Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence (UI) are common conditions affecting many adult women today.

Pelvic organ prolapse is a defect of a specific vaginal segment characterized by descent of the vagina and associated pelvic organ. Patients have varying degrees of prolapse, and in the most severe cases (complete pelvic organ prolapse), the pelvic organ protrudes completely through the genital hiatus. In such cases of pelvic relaxation, multiple defects are associated in the anterior, lateral, posterior, and apical compartments.  Laparoscopic Surgery is an option for Uterovaginal and Vaginal Prolapse.
