Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse is the displacement of any organs within the pelvic region, including the uterus, cervix, vagina, bladder, and even some bowel. Prolapses are responsible for many conditions, including urinary incontinence, herniations, and bulging of the vagina, causing significant discomfort.


Pelvic Organ Prolapse may come as a result of:

  • Childbirth
  • Dystocia (difficult childbirth)
  • Menopause
  • Constipation
  • Post-hysterectomy
  • Weakening of the pelvic floor due to aging

Treatments for Pelvic Organ Prolapse usually involve some surgical intervention. There are many different options depending on which organs are involved and your unique circumstances. Consult Drs. Kimble today to determine which treatment is right for you.
