What is laparoscopic colpopexy?

A Answers (1)

  • Laparoscopic colpopexy is a minimally invasive surgical technique to treat pelvic organ prolapse, which is when the vagina and the surrounding organs lose their support and fall from their normal positions. It provides a safe and durable method for reconstruction of the pelvic floor and its contents without the need for a large abdominal incision. The goal of laparoscopic colpopexy is to re-suspend the vagina and associated pelvic organs through the key-hole incisions. In certain circumstances, a simultaneous hysterectomy, bladder suspension, or rectocele repair may be required, all of which can be accomplished through a vaginal approach.
