Your Solution for Fallen Bladder and Fallen Rectum
It happens to almost 1 in 3 women.
Due to age, genetics, childbirth, or hormonal changes, the pelvic walls and support structures can stretch. This allows the bladder and rectum to travel downward, toward the vaginal opening.
It’s called “prolapse,” and it can cause problems with bladder, rectal and even vaginal functionality. Dr. Christi provides effective surgical options to repair prolapse.

Frequently Asked Questions
Though the treatments do require surgery, none of these surgery types will leave large visible scars. The only treatment that requires external incisions is Robotic Abdominal Sacrocolpopexy (ASC)—with only 4 small incisions for laparoscopic instruments. It has a 99.9% success rate.
Most often you can go home the same day after surgery. Should you need a catheter, it’s usually only needed for a few days, up to a week. You will most likely require prescription pain medicine for a short time post-surgery. You will need to incur minimal physical strain for 6 weeks or more. Dr. Christi will fill you in on full details during your consultation.
Vaginal Native Tissue prolapse repair won’t affect your ability to enjoy intercourse as you have previously, if done correctly. It’s a delicate balance between fallen bladder/fallen rectum remediation and ensuring the vagina isn’t over-tightened.
Dr. Christi has perfected the technique through years of experience.
