Pelvic Reconstruction Surgery
Pelvic reconstructive surgery is used to rebuild vital organs, such as a urinary bladder, vagina or pelvic floor. Sometimes these organs must be removed to treat advanced cancer or are severely damaged after radiation therapy. Bladder reconstruction is often possible by creating a pouch that holds the urine internally, eradicating the need for an external collection bag. Pelvic reconstructive surgery of the pelvic floor for correcting a prolapsed pelvis, and to treat urinary or rectal incontinence may also be performed.
Pelvic reconstructive surgery may be required after a routine gynecological operation or as part of extensive treatment for advanced gynecological disease removal and/or repair. Regardless of the reason, pelvic reconstructive surgery has been shown to reduce potential problems and side effects from surgery and improve patients’ quality of life.
