Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Many women experience the involuntary loss of urine (incontinence) and a falling down (descent or prolapse) of their pelvic organs. There are many treatment options for these problems, including lifestyle changes, weight loss, pelvic exercises, medical and surgical treatments.
Many reproductive health issues can be both diagnosed and treated with surgery. Here is some information from the SOGC and Bupa (from the UK) regarding several common gynecology surgeries. We have also included the handouts you will receive from the hospital regarding post-operative instructions after surgery.
