Augmented Prolapse Repair Study

Dear Colleague:

Florida Bladder Institute of Naples is participating in the Uphold LITE Post-Market Study which is a prospective, non-randomized, parallel cohort, multi-center study of Uphold LITE vs. Native Tissue for the treatment of women with anterior/apical pelvic organ prolapse.

Patients may qualify for the Uphold LITE Study if they:

  • Have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
  • Are female
  • Are 18 years of age or older 

Trial participants will be provided with study related care at no cost, however the hospitalization and procedure are considered part of normal medical care and will be billed to the patient or their insurance company in the usual manner.  Participants will be compensated for transportation, parking or other incidentals associated with their follow-up visits.

There are many options available to treat pelvic organ prolapse and these treatment options will be discussed with the patient should they choose not to participate in the study.  This clinical study may help benefit medical science and future patients.  

To refer a patient, please have them call my office at 239.449.7979 and ask for Anne Wilson, my study coordinator.

Thanks for your consideration
