AZ Urogynecology uses a variety of surgical procedures to help woman heal from bladder and pelvic floor problems. Obviously surgery is always a last resort, but when it is required we will make sure that we are using the absolute most effective procedure possible. This ensures that the patient with start to feel better and hopefully heal up without having too much downtime. That said, when surgery is necessary, the following procedures are available, depending on your specific indications.
Midurethral sling procedure: This procedure is also known as tension-free vaginal tape procedure. This is an outpatient, minimally invasive form of sling surgery with a high success rate. The sling is a tape made of a synthetic material. The sling is placed under the urethra, where it acts as a hammock, compressing the urethra to prevent leaks that occur with activities of daily living.
Peri-urethral injections: This procedure involves injection of a bulking agent into the area around the bladder neck to tighten it. Bulking materials can be injected into the tissue around the urethra to add bulk and keep the sphincter muscles closed to stop urine from leaking. This procedure can be done in the office.
Cystocele repair: Repair of a cystocele or “dropped bladder” is a procedure that involves repairing the bladder bulge through the vaginal wall and reinforcing the support between the bladder and vagina. Cystocele is usually corrected through the vagina without abdominal incisions.
Rectocele repair: Repair of a rectocele or “bulging rectum” is a procedure that involves repairing the rectum bulge through the vaginal wall and reinforcing the support between the rectum and vagina. Cystocele is usually corrected through the vagina without abdominal incisions.
Uterosacral vaginal vault suspension: This procedure involves attaching the top of the vaginal to the ligaments that goes to the sacral (back) bone. This procedure can be done vaginally, laparoscopically or robotically.
Sacral colpopexy: This procedure involves attaching the top of the vagina to a strong ligament in the back bone using straps of graft material. This procedure can be done laparoscopically or robotically.
Colpocleisis: This procedure involves partial or complete closure of the vagina to correct a protruding vaginal bulge. This procedure is reserved for patients who elect not to maintain sexual function.
Vaginal vault prolapse and Enterocele repair: These defects often occur together high in the vagina, so surgery may be approached through the vagina or abdomen. Treatment options are: uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and sacral colpopexy.
