If you’re suffering from uterus problems or a uterine prolapse, you may have already consulted your GP or sought medical advice. In most instances, patients are advised that a hysterectomy is the only viable solution. Whilst a hysterectomy may alleviate uterus pain and provide an effective surgical solution to uterine prolapse pain, it certainly isn’t the only option available.
As many women are hesitant about undergoing a hysterectomy, they can be left with prolapse problems or uterine prolapse bleeding for months, or even years. With symptoms such as pain, discomfort and incontinence occurring because of a prolapse, the condition can affect every part of a patient’s life.
Are you a candidate for prolapse repair surgery?
Before considering a hysterectomy, why not look into the possibility of prolapse repair or sacrohysteropexy? Designed to deliver complete freedom from prolapse symptoms and uterine prolapse pain, a sacrohysteropexy is an extremely effective alternative.
Rather than undergoing a significant operation, as in the case of hysterectomies, prolapse repair surgery can be carried out laparoscopically. Generally, this means that the procedure itself takes a shorter amount of time and recovery time is significantly reduced.
Does a sacrohysteropexy offer a permanent solution?
As a form of prolapsed uterus surgery, a sacrohysteropexy provides an effective and permanent solution to prolapse problems. To date, Mr. Jonathan Broome, Consultant Gynaecologist at The Pelvic Clinic, has performed well over 1000 prolapse repair surgeries and has a 100% success rate.
For women who have spent years dealing with uterus pain, incontinence and discomfort, this type of prolapse repair surgery offers a new lease of life and a lifestyle free from pain.
Can you have children after a sacrohysteropexy?
When women of childbearing age are told a hysterectomy is the only way to alleviate prolapse symptoms, they can be left with an impossible choice. If they wish to conceive in the future, a hysterectomy clearly isn’t a viable solution to their medical condition.
Following a sacrohysteropexy, however, women will still be able to conceive and carry a child safely. As the uterus is stabilised, rather than removed, there is no barrier to conception or pregnancy. In fact, this form of prolapse repair surgery can even prevent a recurrence of the condition following childbirth.
