At Columbus OB/GYN, we know that urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life. We offer advanced surgical procedures to address these conditions and provide effective treatment options. Our experienced team of OB/GYN surgeons specializes in incontinence and prolapse surgeries, utilizing state-of-the-art techniques to restore pelvic health and improve your overall well-being.
Urinary incontinence refers to the involuntary leakage of urine, which can occur during physical activities, coughing, sneezing, or even during normal daily activities. Pelvic organ prolapse, on the other hand, refers to the descent or “falling” of pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, into the vaginal canal. Both conditions can cause discomfort and inconvenience and affect your quality of life.
Before recommending surgery, our highly skilled OB/GYN specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition. This may include a comprehensive medical history review, physical examination, and diagnostic tests, such as urodynamic studies or imaging tests.
Our goal is to accurately diagnose your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
For stress urinary incontinence, where leakage occurs with physical activities, a mid-urethral sling procedure may be recommended. This minimally invasive procedure involves placing a synthetic sling beneath the urethra to support and improve urinary control.
If you are experiencing pelvic organ prolapse, our surgeons may recommend a variety of procedures depending on the extent and location of the prolapse. These procedures may involve repairing weakened pelvic floor muscles, repositioning prolapsed organs, or removing excess vaginal tissue.
At Columbus OB/GYN, we are proud to offer robotic-assisted surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. This advanced technology allows for precise and minimally invasive procedures, resulting in reduced pain, shorter recovery times, and improved surgical outcomes.
