Vaginal Vault Prolapse

Robotic Surgery for Uterine or Vaginal Vault Prolapse – da Vinci® Sacrocolpopexy

As many as 50% of all women who have given birth vaginally have some degree of pelvic organ prolapse. Once women enter menopause and experience decreased estrogen levels, they are at about the same risk for prolapse as a woman who had a vaginal delivery.

Women who suffer from uterine or vaginal vault prolapse that requires surgery now can benefit from the da Vinci® Surgical System. This robot-assisted surgery system allows doctors to perform laparoscopic and some complex surgeries with greater precision and control than traditional surgery. Some formerly invasive surgeries can even now be performed laparoscopically using da Vinci.

Minnesota Urology was one of the first specialty practice groups in the Twin Cities to offer the state-of-the-art da Vinci system for treatment of uterine or vaginal vault prolapse.
