Minimally Invasive and Robotic Treatment for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) Now Available from the Specialists at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control in Clarkston, MI

Clarkston, MI (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) results when the supportive muscles and connective tissues of a woman’s pelvic organs (uterus, bladder, and bowel) become weakened or damaged. Causes of this weakness and damage include straining, heavy lifting, obesity, constipation, multiple vaginal deliveries, genetics, smoking, and the aging process. There are different types of POP: cystocele (bladder), rectocele ( rectum), enterocele (small bowel), uterine, and vaginal vault (after hysterectomy).

In the case of a cystocele, the bladder descends into the vaginal canal resulting in urinary control problems such as stress urinary incontinence (SUI), overactive bladder (OAB), and urge incontinence. Likewise, a rectocele occurs when the rectum protrudes in the posterior vaginal canal, causing constipation and difficulty with defecating. With a uterine prolapse, the patient will often feel a “bulge” in the vagina as the uterus descends down the vaginal canal. A vaginal vault prolapse occurs after a hysterectomy due to the uterus being removed and tension no longer being applied to the vagina any longer.

Fortunately, women no longer have to suffer with the consequences of POP. There are many minimally-invasive and robotic surgical options to treat these conditions and restore a woman’s anatomy to its proper location. Minimally-invasive procedures usually require no hospital stay and recovery time is much shorter than a standard surgery. Robotic procedures are by their very nature minimally-invasive. Incisions are smaller, hospitals stays are not necessary, and recovery time is quick. According to Dr. Jonathan Zaidan MD, board certified specialist and owner of Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, “These minimally-invasive and robotic procedures can correct all types of POP and offers the patient a quick, immediate fix to the problem and that is exactly what the patient wants – a quick, easy, stress-free solution to their problem”.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse can be diagnosed from a simple gynecologic exam and some basic in-office, on-site testing such as urodynamics and ultrasound. The patient is first scheduled for an initial consultation with a nurse practitioner, appropriate testing is ordered then the patient has a follow-up visit with a physician to discuss the test results and treatment plan. According to Debbie Henry, NP-C, nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis, “We have streamlined the care here at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control. Our goal is to deliver the excellent care in a timely manner. Patients want their problem to be addressed quickly and accurately and that’s exactly what we do”.
