Pelvic Organ Prolapse


Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which weakness of the pelvic floor muscles may cause internal organs to shift from their normal position creating a “herniation” into the vagina.

Pregnancy, childbirth, obesity and even heavy lifting or exercise may stretch the tissues and ligaments that hold the bladder, uterus, urethra and small intestine in the pelvis.

Some of the symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse may include:

  • Feeling of Pelvic Heaviness or Fullness
  • Pulling or Aching Feeling in the Lower Abdomen, Groin or Lower Back
  • Leakage of Urine
  • Problems Having a Bowel Movement
  • Bulging of the Pelvic Organs into the Vagina

The good news is that you don’t have to suffer with it. Dr. Joseph Gauta specializes in the medical and surgical management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse and has a variety of minimally invasive procedures and surgical options to help.
