Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse can occur when the fascial support of the pelvic organs and muscles are damaged. Symptoms can be described as a fullness or pressure in the vaginal area often made worse by activity, and the patient may or may not have complaints of bowel or bladder dysfunction. Some patients may not have any symptoms but want to take a preventative approach.
