Pubosuspension is a surgical procedure used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which pelvic organs such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum shift from their normal anatomical position.
Pubosuspension can be performed using different surgical techniques, including the abdominal or laparoscopic approach. The general steps of the procedure include:
- Anesthesia: The patient undergoes general or regional anesthesia to ensure a painless experience during the surgery.
- Surgical access: Surgical access can be obtained through an abdominal incision or through small laparoscopic incisions.
- Identification and correction of prolapse: During the procedure, prolapsed tissues and organs are repositioned to their correct anatomical position. Ligaments and pelvic floor tissues are then sutured and anchored to the anterior pelvic wall.
- Closure of the incision: At the end of the procedure, the incisions are closed with sutures or the use of surgical adhesives.
To determine if pubosuspension is the most suitable treatment, it is advised to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist consultation.
